I was told that modifiers LT AND RT CAN ONLY BE USED FOR PROCDURES.


IS THIS CORRECT?

FOR EXAMPLE IF I PERFORMED A PROCEDURE ON THE LEFT HEEL AND EVALUATE AND MANAGEMENT ON THE RIGHT HEEL.

SHOULD I BE ABLE TO BILL THE RIGHT HEEL WITH AN EM

99309 25 RT 707.14
11043 LT 707.14

TRYING TO PUT THIS IN EMR LOGIC

I have always known to use rt & lt on procedures only. it appears you are correct in using modifier 25 with 99309.
