    Question Critical Care - When billing CPT

    AAPC: Back to School
    When billing CPT 99291 and also billing artline 36620, CV line 36556, should we be putting a modifier 59 on the Artline or should we be using a 25 on the Critical care 99291?

    We do use a 25 modifier with the 99291. I do not use 59 with the second procedure.
