Thread: mod 22 on NCCI edit

    Default mod 22 on NCCI edit

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does a modifier 22 override an NCCI edit? It was billed on all procedures performed. All have global periods and therefore can be billed with 22. But i am wondering if the modifier can override an NCCI edit - especially since my edits are "no modifier allowed."

    Additionally, do Multiple Procedure Reductions apply to procedures billed with modifier 22?

    thank you,
    Janene, CPC

    a 22 will not overide a CCI edit and yes a reduction rule will still apply.

    Default one more question on 22

    thank you, Debra.

    one more question: can 22 be billed on more than one procedure, or just the primary one? I am finding conflicting information on that...

    the 22 is procedure specific so for each procedure that was more difficult than it should have been.
