    Can you use modifier 24 and 25 on same E/M code? If not which modifier would be used? Thanks.

    I've had to use this combination many times in order to receive payment for claims that were unrelated to the post-op and separately identifiable from the procedure.

    Does the order make a difference? This does not seem to be clearing the edit in our billing system.

    Default Idx 24, 25

    In the IDX system we are using for billing the 24 modifier is first, then 25 in the second position.
