Thread: 22554 with 63075

    Default 22554 with 63075

    AAPC: Back to School
    I know that as of 1/1/11 if 22554 is done along with 63075 we are to report the combination code 22551 even if another provider performed the 63075 and I also understand that if 22554 was performed alone without 63075 we would still report 22554. My question is this: If the neurosurgeon performs the 63075 and the orthopaedic surgeon performs the 22554, would both surgeons report 22551 for a single level and 22552 for additional levels? Thanks for the help-new year and new codes always bring questions.

    I would say they both report 22551 with modifier 62.
