Hello...I have a patient who fractured the 3rd and 4th metacarpal of the left hand and doc did an ORIF on each. I'm coding 26615-LT twice but not sure if I need to add mod 59 to the second one. Thanks!:confused:

ASCExpert states that F2 and F3 modifiers are appropriate for this CPT. With the use of these modifiers you shouldn't need the 59.
