    Question Modifyer usage
    Medical Coding Books
    A patient sees a doctor and has their blood drawn same day. Pt has a diagnosis of 401.1 and 272.4. Would you bill out a 99212-25 linked to the 401.1 and 36415-59 linked to the 272.4 with this use of the mods or not use any mods at all. How would you bill this out so you are paid for both the E&M and the procedure?

    If you are billing to blue cross appended a mod -90 to the venipunture. The office visit does not require mod. My experience.
