    Default New to OB

    AAPC: Back to School
    Ok, not completely an OB question, maybe just a brain fade...but.......patient has hysterectomy in November, comes in 10 days prior to the end of the 90 day FU with a complication of bleeding from cervical stump.

    Which modifier would be used on this?

    Hello! If The Pt Went Back To The Operating/procedure Room With A Unplanned Return I Would Use Modifier 78 To The Related Procedure. Make Sure The Same Physician Did The Procedure.
