    Default Modifer 58 for asst surgeon
    New Call-to-action
    Hello - I have old notes that state 58 is not used on an assistant surgeon. I couldn't find anything on the internet. Do you use 58 or don't you? Thanks...

    Generally assistant surgeon claims should not need a global modifier and may deny if you try to add one because the payer edits do not like the two modifiers together. On rare occasion I'll get an assistant's claim that has denied for global, but normally you would not need a global modifier on it (i.e. 58, 78, 79).
