Thread: 96402 done twice on same day

    Default 96402 done twice on same day

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our company has picked up billing for an Urologist and it is all new to me!

    The urologist has given me the following procedure codes for a single date of service; 99212, 96402, 96402 and J9999.

    My question on the above is: can I bill 96402 twice and do I need a modifier--possibly 76 or 59?

    Thanks for any help,
    Alisa, CPC

    You can' t bill a 96402 for the same drug on the same day. If you have a different drug, then yes you can bill.
