Yes. You're correct! The assistant surgeon's codes should mirror the surgeon's codes with the addition of modifier 80, which should usually come first in the sequence. Modifiers that influence payment should be listed first when multiple modifiers are used.

It varies, a smidge, from one insurance to the next. But, Medicare allows 16% of the fee schedule.
