    Default Which modifier for ectropian/entropion repairs?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Am I supposed to use the E modifiers or just LT/RT FOR THESE EYE PROCEDURES ...




    These are a few I am working on ...also I don't see any CCI edits and they are bilaterial procedures ... can i be sure I don't need any -59 modifiers ?

    Please help - this is totally new to me ...

    I have the codes right just am not sure on the modifiers

    Thank you !!!

    I used to code for an eye surgery center and I had no problem getting paid with E modifiers.
