Modifier 59 is correct on 29876 as long as it meets the modifier requirements as being separate and identifiable. It has been our experience that we NEVER append modifier 51. The carrier will append. Unless you are proficient in the rules and regs on 51 there is potential for misplacement and revenue loss. Hope this has helped.
