I'm not sure you'd ever really use it. It was used to put on the code if you didn't have room for all the modifiers you needed, then you'd list the modifiers in the description field. Claims can accept 4 modifiers on each code so you don't need the 99.

the only time you would use the 99 modifier is if you had more than 4 modifiers. At that point you would only use the 99 on the line and then list all of the modifiers in box 19 of the HCFA
