I have a question that has been popping up recently. A patient comes into the ER with a dislocation and the ER doctor performs the procedure to fix this dislocation and uses modifier 54. A
few days later/weeks, the patient comes in for pain in the same area and the ER doctor checks and its not dislocated, gives the patient pain meds and discharges him home. Can this 2nd visit be billed and do we need a modifier?

So just to clarify. I would bill the procedure code again, but use modifier 55?

Thanks
