    Question 59 Modifier with 26615
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello...I have a patient who fractured the 3rd and 4th metacarpal of the left hand and doc did an ORIF on each. I'm coding 26615-LT twice but not sure if I need to add mod 59 to the second one. Thanks!

    ASCExpert states that F2 and F3 modifiers are appropriate for this CPT. With the use of these modifiers you shouldn't need the 59.
