Modidifier 25 with 0 day globals

  1. Default Modidifier 25 with 0 day globals
    Medical Coding Books
    Can someone tell me if modifier 25 can be used on an E/M on the same day as a 0 day global such as a scope PX 52000 ? I always thought 0 days globals do not get 25. 10 day get 25 and 90 day get 57. I also read that if the 0 day global procedure was performed on the same day as the E/M, the E/M is not payable because it is bundled into the fee. If you have any links to send me, that would be great! Thanks!

    I am not sure what you are asking(brain fog from vacation), however a 57 modifier is a decision for surgery on the E&M. I use a 25 when something totally different other than the Chief Complaint was done. I do not have any specific link, perhaps someone else does.
