    Default Modifier 22, outpatient?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a situation where I would like to use modifier 22, but it is not listed as an outpatient approved modifier and it is not in my drop down list on the encoder. Is 22 appropriate for hospital outpatient surgery?

    the 22 modifier is not applicable for facility billing
