When billing for bilateral myringotomies would it be appropriate to bill it as x 2 with modifier -50 or should there be a line for each (i.e. 69420 RT and 69420 LT)? :confused:

I would go with 69420-50 but my suggestions is to review the coding guidelines for the company your are billing to;) .

:) Thank you! That's what I've been doing but someone said that it should be done the other way and I disagreed. I will take your advice and check with the payer, see how they want it individually.
