    Smile Modifier for coding CPT 64612 & CPT 64613 on same day

    Hi Friends,

    Please help me with this

    Our neurologist performs Chemodenervation of muscles of facial nerve, neck muscle, & muscles of extremity .
    We have got the CPT codes for same
    64612 - Chemodenervation of muscle(s); muscle(s) innervated by facial nerve
    64613 - Chemodenervation of muscle(s); neck muscle
    64614 - Chemodenervation of muscle(s); extremity

    Which modifier should we use to code all these services on same day ?
    59 or 51 ? & For which procedure ?

    64614
    64612 -51
    64613-51

    I've ranked them based on RVU order. Since CCI edits do not have bundling edits against these codes, I would select modifier 51.
