Hello! Would you be able to give advice on the proper modifier to use for a breast biopsy that has been started (patient was prepped, injection of dye given, localization images performed), but the focus of the biopsy was not located, therefore that portion was not performed?

-52 reduced procedure and you will probably need to submit with records. Some payers have a set reduction (my payer drops to 50% for reduced) others may want to review to see exactly how much of the procedure was completed and will assign a percent on a case by case basis.
