I was told by another facility today that if a physician admits a patient to the hospital and during the admit makes the decision to perform a 90 day global procedure on the same day, that a -57 modifier is not necessary if the documentation supports the service. I always thought that situation is what the -57 modifier was for. Any thoughts????
