    Default Modifier 76

    AAPC: Back to School
    My Dr did a procedure 3x on a pt in the 90 day global with mod 76. Does anyone have some info on this modifier as far as reimbursement, uses, etc. I don't have op-reports and want to see diffence from 78 and 58. Thanks.

    I don't think 76 is the way to go in your situation but maybe I am reading it wrong. WPSMedicare has really nice modifier fact sheets.


    This indicates you only use 76 if the procedures are on the same day.



    Not sure who your carrier is but hopefully these are helpful.
