    If you append the 62 modifier the claim will still be denied for invalid modifier as 27447 does not allow this modifier.

    Agreed and the 62 will reduce each physicians reimbursement to 62.5% of the allowable.

    I don't agree with the -62 modifier.

    If one is truly doing the left and another the right. I'd go with 27447-LT for one doc and 27447-59-RT for the other.
