46080 is a "separate procedure". My provider excised an anal polyp and then did a sphincterotomy for an anal fissure. Would this scenario qualify for a -59 modifier since they were 2 distinct procedures or is only 46922 billable since both of these procedures were done in the anus?
Thanks,
Sue

Thanks for the quick response! Someone else said it was ok and I didn't even think to double-check the edits. That'll teach me :)
