Therapy Cap Modifier KX Extended Through March 31

On March 2, 2010, President Obama signed into law the “Temporary Extension Act of 2010.” Among other things, this law extends through March 31, 2010, the exception process for therapy claims reaching the annual cap, retroactive to January 1, 2010. Affected providers may submit claims for exceptions to the annual therapy caps, with dates of service January 1 through March 31, 2010, using the KX modifier, following the pre-January 1, 2010, requirements for therapy cap exceptions.
