I am a current student for Medical billing and coding and a question came up in class the other night that I was asked to research for a definitive answer. I was hoping someone out there might be able to help me out. The question is if you have a CPT code with an add on code and you also have a modifier, does the modifier go on the parent code, the add on code or both? Does anyone know the answer and if there is documentation on this where I might find it?
