A patient has a breast biopsy (19101) done and returns within the 10 day global period to receive results. it is billed out as 99024 and then the dr also wants to bill out a 992xx with a modifier 24 for the discussion of the treatment options, they feel that the treatment options are unrelated to the biopsy. does anyone have in writing to substantiate this is appropriate? I found an article written in 2003 and an article from decision health concerning the use of modifier 24 where this is used for an example but could someone lead me to where to find correct info,
