Thread: 62 modifier

    Default 62 modifier

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there a list of CPTs allowed to be billed with a 62 modifier?

    I searched the CPTs for 62 modifier in EncoderPro and it showed a very long list of CPTs (around 2567 codes) !!

    Check indicators for mod 62 in Medicare's National Physician Fee Schedule

    This indicator identifies services for which two surgeons, of different specialties, may be paid.

    0 Co-surgeons not permitted for this procedure.

    1 Co-surgeons could be paid, but documentation is required to support the
    medical necessity of two surgeons for the procedure.

    2 Co-surgeons permitted. No documentation is required if the two specialty
    requirement is met.

    9 Concept does not apply

    I only see the fees on Medicare's website. Can you give me the direct link?

    Thank you.

    Click on "payment policy indicators"

    Enter your CPT code and select all modifiers on your drop down key


    There is a column for Co-surgery

    Reference Partha's post for the payment indicator
