    Question 20680

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can a PA assit be billed with this CPT code? I checked on encoder and code correct and they both list AS as a modifier for this code, however at our clinic we have been told that a PA assist can not be billed. Anyone know?

    Unless something has changed, this procedure isn't payable for an assist

    At the practice I coded for the CPT 20680 was never paid.
