    Default Ultrasound - triplets

    AAPC: Back to School
    Transabdominal u/s, triple gestation. 76801 for first gestation. For the other two - is it 76802 x2 or 76802, 76802 - 59? Thank you in advance

    V codes for triplet gestations (V91.10-V91.19
    76802 59
    76802 59

    I actually think it depends on the software you have. For example, with the software I used to work with you could enter the same procedure code twice and add the 59 modifier.
    With the system I work on now, it won't let me enter the same procedure code twice, so I would enter 76802 x 2 units.

    Hope this makes sense.

    We don't need 59 for the second cpt.
