Thread: S2900 modifier?

  1. #1

    Default S2900 modifier?

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a physician is using the DaVinci robotic device in the hospital setting would we put a modifier 26 on S2900 for the physician service? I know that S2900 is not regonized by Medicare but wondering if certain commercial carriers may pay for this and I don't think a modifer 26 is required because this HCPCS code is a temporary code. How would we come up with a fee to charge? Just need to verify my opinion. Thanks for any input!

    You do not need modifier 26. This is not a procedure that has a technical component and a professional component. It is an add-on code to the primary procedure.
