    Default PUSBX and Cysto on same day

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am having problems with reimbursement for a 52000 and 55700 billed at the same time. We have added modifier 59 on Cysto and have given both codes different dx. Does anyone have an appeal letter or some information that would be helpful?

    We use a -59

    I found a website while in the AAPC forums that is great for forms/denail letters, and all kinds of other great stuff


    It also has links to other great sites from there as well. Good luck
