    Does anyone know if you can bill 54057 with 53020? Thanks for your help.

  2. Smile
    I just checked it on Encoder Pro.com and they say it can if you add -51 modifier to 53020. Hope this helps!

    Thank you for your help.

  4. Default coding edits
    procedure codes 54057 and 53020 are not bundled per CCI edits
    no modifiers are required and if the insurance is Medicare they no longer
    accept the 51 modifier
