Please help me settle a difference of opinion. Which is the correct way to bill an office visit and I&D (10060)?

A) 99213- 25 and 10060
B) 99213-25 and 10060-59
C) 99213 and 10060-59

Thanks,
Hunter Smith, CPC

10060 only unless the E&M is documented as significant and separately identifiable.
Otherwise A. Modifier -25 on E&M is the attestation that E&M is significant and separately identifiable..

Modifier 59 would only be used if its multiple surgical procedures, there is an NCCI edit between the two and meets criteria for separate reporting.
