Thread: Billing 66984

    Default Billing 66984

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of my co-workers is billing 66984 co-management with a 54 modifier and then 66984 with 55 as the post op care. Anyone billing this code this way? Where does she need to indicate the number of dates for Medicare?

    have you asked them "why" they're doing it that way? why are they using the modifiers IF the full procedure is being provided? (pre/post)???

    I was confused also; is there more to this story? Otherwis I do not see why the need for modifiers.
