    Red face twin c-section mod -22 for assistant?
    Medical Coding Books
    When coding for delivery of twins via C/S, we code 59510-22. What about the assistant - should that be 59514-80-22? Does -22 only apply to the primary surgeon? I just can't think today

    According to ACOG guidelines, the 22 modifer would only be used on the primary physician codes.
