Very new to this
« on: March 26, 2008, 02:38:38 PM »
I am working with a new Teleradiology group, and we are in the process of working with some health plans.  Would someone be able to tell me what par providers is and also q6 modifier.  We have been getting vague information and trying to figure it all out.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Hi,

Par means participating or in network with an insurance carrier.  You can read more about it here.  http://www.solutions-medical-billing.com/participating.html

The Q6 modifier means "service furnished by a locum tenens physician".

Thanks
