Modifier usage in preoperative period

    Default Modifier usage in preoperative period

    An EPS cardiology physician plans a 90 day interventional cardiology procedure one day prior to procedure and performs critical care on the day of procedure. The procedure is performed by an interventional cardiologist. The question is what modifiers need to be appended to both the physicians.

    Any expertise, feedback, opinion or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you and have a great day!
