Hi there! I gather from your question that you're billing the OB/GYN charges-I used to do that but now work in an anesthesia billing office so I understand both sides to this question. I agree that 64435 should be able to stand alone from the biospy 58100 code and NOT require modifier 59-it's two completely different services being provided. I don't think it would hurt to have the modifier, just to really make it clear to the payer that the OB/GYN did both the block and the procedure, but I disagree with the 'no mod, no pmt'. CCI suggestion to use 00940 is for the anesthesiolgist to bill if the patient were put under anesthesia-from your question I am thinking this is a procedure being done in the office. Hope this helps-thanks!
