I could use a little assistance. My physician found on an exam that the patient had bilateral breast cysts which he aspirated in the office. I billed 19000-50 and it was denied that the modifier did not belong with that CPT code. Should I have coded 19000-LT and 19000-RT? It was also done at the same time as an annual 99396, which I put a modifier -25 on and I did get paid for that. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you
