93458 denied

  1. Question 93458 denied
    Medical Coding Books
    can you bill CPT 93458 with 92980?

  2. #2
    Yes you can but starting April 2011 you now need a -59 modifier due to CCI edits.

  3. #3
    Do you need a 59 on the cath or stent?

  4. #4
    On the cath.

  5. #5
    If one doc does the cath, then another doc comes in and does the stent, do you still need a 59 on the cath. They are under the same tax id.

  6. #6
    Yes, you still need a -59 mod on the cath.

  7. Default
    Do you have a resource where i can read up on this because i feel uncomfortable with just appending modifier 59 without having something to back it up.
