Eswl 50590

  1. Default Eswl 50590

    Physician performed ESWL 50590 in December. The procedure was performed again on 2/9/2011 along with cysto 52332. Both Feb procedures are denying as bundled. Can someone educate me please. Any mods I can use?? Thanks!

    Did you attached the 59 modifier to the second procedure?

    Why were the February procedures done? New stone(s) or retreatment of existing stones? If for new stone(s) you need to add modifier 79; if for retreatment of existing stones, add modifier 58. CPT 50590 has 90 global days.
