    Default MRI arthrogram right hip under fluoro

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have been receiving denials for 77002 stating that it's included in another paid service 27093. Should I be attaching a 59 modifier onto 77002??

    Any advice would be great.

    Exactly append 59 modifier for 77002, since 77022 is component for 27093 in CCI edits.Hope this helps.
