    Default Cervical Dilator

    Promo: Code Books
    A patient had a cervical dilator placed in the A.M. Later that evening, it falls out and has to be replaced. Would you bill the 59200 twice? Would the second placement get paid?

    Default 76 modifier

    Use the 76 modifier ("repeat procedure by same physician") on the second instance.
