If they are each individually performed services you add it to each service.

Yes, I see the therapy but is it for a Chiro or PT?  They use the some same codes and mods. DMK is right.  I download the medicare billing guides for the different specialty's and they give which codes and modifiers to use.  Usually the other panels follow medicare/medicaid guidelines but not all.  Good luck.
