Hello,

We are pediatric surgeons who take part in neurosurgery procedures, specifically
VA shunts for cpt codes 62220, 62223, 62230.
When billing these procedure both offices use modifier-62 for reimbursement.

The operative note of each surgeon indicates a specialist from the other group [Neuro or Pediatric Surgeon] as a co-surgeon.

Can anyone point to specific instructions for this billing? We have checked references such as online encoder which indicate -62 may be used. Looking for some direction on the correct use of the combination of these codes.
Thank you for your comments.
