    Default Coding Edge Issue RE: Prolonged Services 99354-59

    I remember seeing an article in the Coding Edge magazine that dealt with this issue. Was that a figment of my imagination? Couldn't pull it up using the AAPC Coding Edge Articles search function, so am hoping some of you might be able to direct me to the proper month of publication. ---Suzanne Byrum, CPC-A

    The one I remember was several years ago, but you do not use a 59 modifier on 99354.

    Debra, I had typed in code ranges 99354-59 intending it to be understood that the question was for codes 99354-99359 and not modifier 59. Thanks for pointing that out! ---Suzanne
