clarification on modifiers for ASC

  1. Talking clarification on modifiers for ASC
    Medical Coding Books
    We were advised not use modifier 59 for multiple surgeries for ambulatory surgery center billing. Now we are told to use modifier 51 but that doesn't really fall under ASC either. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what to use for multiple surgeries when coding ASC bills? thanks
