I bill for an OB and am trying to bill 58552 with 57282. These two codes do allow a modifier. Medicaid keeps denying for incorrect modifier. We tried 51 and 59 on the 57282. Any thoughts or is anyone else having this issue with NV Medicaid?

oh the joys of medicaid.

at least you're not trying to appeal them.

here you go--there are several modifiers to choose from. 51/59 are not assigned. the fee schedule is not easy to find. the link is below if you want to bookmark it:

Any NCCI modifier should override the edit. 51 isn't an NCCI modifier. I suggest 59 or 76 and place it on the greater procedure which in this case is 58552. I'm not familiar with Nevada Medicaid, this is just a general suggestion.

Its possible they want the X modifiers instead of 59? Sometimes Medicaid has wierd modifiers requirements other than standard medicare ones. I assume it has nothing to do with the FA-50 sterilization consent form since the [FONT=&quot]hysterectomy was paid for.[/FONT]
