    AAPC: Back to School
    Is it correct to bill CPT 51797 with modifier 51 as this CPT is an add on code?

    No. Per CPT, "add-on" codes are exempt from modifier 51.

    The question is that simple but sometimes the way the doctor comes up with an issue and confidently disputes you, it makes you fall back on this forum...
