The AS modifier is used for assistants-at-surgery that are non-physician practitioners, such as Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners or Clinical Nurse Specialists. The 80, 81 and 82 modifiers are for physicians.

We use -AS and -81 for our PA surgical assist's (depending on the payor). And we only use -80 for MD surgical assists. Hope this helps.
