    My doctor saw a child in the morning with a sinus infection. Latter that same day the child came back in because of a nose bleed. Do we put -25 modifier on this visit?

    It may be modifier 76, or an unlisted E & M CPT code. Check that insurance companies website, and review their policy for repeat E & M services on the same date.

    yes, I'd put the .25 on the second visit - link the dx's accordingly. the modifier 76 is for procedures - not E/M's
