Can you use modifier 62 and 80 on the same claim?
The surgeons worked together on one procedure and assisted on
the others. I was told to use one modifer or the other, not both together on
the same claim
Please help

If two separate procedures at the same session, but undertaken one after the other by these two surgeons only,
then: Say Dr.A was Primary surgeon and Dr. B was assisitant surgeon for procedure X.
For this X procudure code , Dr.A would be claiming his bill modifier 80-for Asst Surgeon Dr.B

Dr. B was the primary surgeon for ProcedureY assisted by Dr.A, then Dr.B would claim his bill with Y procedure code; modifier 80- for assistant Surgeon Dr.A
Hope it is understandable
