    I am attempting to locate the payment rule for the 62 modifier. I was able to find on the cms website 62.5% of the global surgery fee is reimbursable. Is that for both surgeons? The local state website does not have any payment rule listed for the 62 modifier. Thanks Chrissy

    Medicare says "For co-surgeons (modifier 62), the fee schedule amount applicable to the payment for each cosurgeon is 62.5 percent of the global surgery fee schedule amount."
