    Default Using modifier 50 with 17110

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is it okay to use modifier 50 with 17110 since it is on both feet?
    Please reply asap?

    Thank you,

    Modifier -50 is not a valid modifier for 17110. Regardless of the treatment being on both feet, it is for "up to 14 lesions" so it doesn't matter the location.
