Cervical Dilator

  1. #1
    Default Cervical Dilator
    Medical Coding 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.
