Modifier V5

Modifier for Vascular Access on Hemodialysis Claims

Modifier V5 must be entered if a vascular catheter is present even if it is not being used for the delivery of the hemodialysis. In this instance 2 modifiers should be entered, V5 (Any Vascular Catheter (alone or with any other vascular access)) for the vascular catheter and either V6 (Arteriovenous Graft (or other Vascular Access not including a vascular catheter in use with two needles)) or V7 (Arteriovenous Fistula Only (in use with two needles)) for the access that is being used for the delivery of hemodialysis.
