Thread: Bilateral Vein Ablation

    Default Bilateral Vein Ablation

    AAPC: Back to School
    When vein ablation on the GSV is done on both legs on the same day, what is the correct way to code it? We are having trouble when using the modifier 50.

    We never do bilateral on the same day but have you tried using and RT and LT?
