Looks as there is a July 2020 NCCI update to the codes with CMS. When an occupational therapist does a re-eval (code 97168) and also does a separate treatment (code 97530) is the 59 modifier no longer required?

I didn't see any NCCI edits for these codes. Probably want to check with the payer and see if they require the use of the 59 modifier with these codes as the use of this modifier would depend on the payer requirements, I think.
