    Post Modifier for 2 surgeons performing 2 different procedures

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there a modifier I would use when our Family Practice provider did a laparoscopic tubal in conjunction with a laparoscopic cholecystectomy by a Surgeon not in our practice?

    You do not need any modifier, simply report the procedure your physician performed.
