    You need to add 26 modifier to 93571. Hope this helps!

    i was thinking i read somewhere you couldn't charge for the 93571-26 when you actually do an intervention to the vessel... that it was included in that.. but i'm still looking to see where i saw that... has anyone else saw that??

    Default 93571 & Medicare

    We had originally billed these with a 26 modifier and a LD/LC/RC and were getting denied for invalid/missing modifier. We took the LD/LC/RC off and resubmitted and then received payment.

    My advice would be to bill with a 26 modifier, and leave off the vessel modifier.

    Hope this helps! Good luck!
