    Question 20553 Modifier possible?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there a modifier I can use when billing trigger points (20553) with an epi. injections (such as 62311 or 62310)?

    Some insurances are not paying the two procedures when performed on the same day, but you can try the 59 modifier.
