    Check your modifier. I used that when I billed the PA as the assistant surgeon.

    In the state of GA we are not allowed ANY modifiers with Medicaid so you may need to check into that

    Our PAs are individually credentialed with T-19 Medicaid Wisconsin. We bill office visits by PAs under their own name/number. The AS modifier can only be used with procedure codes that accept an assistant surgeon. You would never use this modifier with E/M code.

    Hope that helps.

    Assuming you're referring to surgery...NC requires modifier 80 for assistant at surgery for those codes that allow an assistant.
