Hello all. When we code 36245 and the procedure is Bilateral, my new coder is using the 50 modifier and changing the units from 1 to 2. Is that really necessary? Doesn't the 50 modifier already say that it's bilateral and all she should really be doing is changing the price to reflect the cost x 2 but not really changing the units?? One of the insurance companies paid triple what they should have. I'm not complaining about the overpayment, I just want to code correctly.
