    Question bleph surgery with lesion removal question
    New Call-to-action
    I know the answers I read from you on the AAPC site were from 2015, but I need to rebill a 15823 mod 50 with a lesion removal 11440. I originally billed with a 51 mod and it was denied. What should I have done as Medicare naturally paid the lesser and denied the bleph as inclusive.

    I never use -51 with Medicare you have to use the -x Medicare modifiers that replaced -59. Example: I use Xu modifier for these two procedures.
