    Default failed endometrial biopsy.

    For a failed endo bx I have always used a 52 modifier. It has come to my attention that maybe I should use a 53 modifier. Any advice on which one is correct.

    I'd check with the third party.

    Modifier 53 is correct

    Why do you think 53 is better?
