    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello everyone! My doctor attempted an OCT 92134 but was unreliable and unable to get a good scan. Can this be billed? Is a -53 modifier used? Please any help on this would be appreciated

    Default 92134 - 53

    As per CCI edits you cannot use 92134 with Modifier 53.

    thank you

    From searching the NCCI guidelines there is nothing that would prevent you from submitting (I can find no reference to this modifier being excluded on any search.) The only modifier that should not be used is the 52 as was done in the past with 92135.
