    Arrow -26 Modifer on New Vascular Codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am coding in a physician office setting. Should I be appending a the -26 modifier to the new codes 37220-37235. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi! You do not need to add mod 26 These codes do include the S & I and imaging but no modifer 26 in needed~

    No, you do not need the 26 modifier. All pre work is included in the new codes(ie, catheterization, selective catheterization and supervison & interpertation related to the intervention.) Hope that helps..
