Hello, My question concerns acceptable modifiers for anesthesia for two separate surgeries but they are on the same day. We say append the 59 modifier only on the second surgery. Others are saying you can use modifier 76, 77, 78, and 79. My research shows that these are for CPT coding not ASA codes for anesthesia. Please advise. Thank you.
