    Question Modifiers

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need help with modifiers for outpatient surgery center: three patients.

    1. DX: RT shoulder 727.00, 840.7, 726.2, 715.91

    CPT: 29827

    Which modifier I should use?

    2. DX: 374.10 (Ectopion, both lower eyelids), 709.2 (Scar tissue, LT ear).

    CPT: 14060-LT-59

    Did I use the correct modifiers? Any suggestion.

    3. DX: 527.2 (RT submandibular sialadenitis), 701.9 (multiple skin tags RT upper eyelid), 784.49 (hoarseness).

    CPT: 42330-59

    Do I need modifier for 31515 Procedure?

    Thank you so much.

    I'll respond referencing the shoulder case only.

    You've got several codes that bundle there that are not reportable. Please check your CCI edits (29820, 23700).
