    Question Coding breast implant screening mammography

    AAPC: Back to School
    Do you code for the screening mammography breast implants twice since it is 8 views versus 4? Or would you use a 22 modifiere to indicate the additional work?

    Noridian is telling us the 22 modifier is not applicable for outpatient services. I too am looking for the correct CPT / modifier.
