When I am billing surgical assists, I realize I need to use the 80 modifiers for my assistant MD surgeon. Question is do I also need to use the 59,51 just as on the actual surgeon charges? Does the claim get further reduced after the 80?

I bill the same modifiers that I use for the primary surgeon I just put the 80/82 modifier first.
