    Default CPT 35656 modifier

    AAPC: Back to School
    The only CPT billed is 35656, payer is asking for missing modifier. Laterality modifier LT already used. Any suggestions?

    Is the patient already in a global period? Perhaps they are looking for a 78 or 79? Or maybe the patient has already had this procedure in the past and they are looking for a 76 or 77? Just a couple of other factors to consider.

    I agree with halebill, however also take the LT modifier off, I have never used an LT or RT modifier with theese codes.
