Mod -62, 66, or no modifier???

  1. Question Mod -62, 66, or no modifier???
    Medical Coding Books
    Two Surgeons, TWO different anatomical sites, same surgical session.
    (Dr A - Elbow... and Dr B - Ankle)

    I originally sent this in with a -62... only one dr was paid so far, and the other pending additional info. It was brought to my attention the -62 may be incorrect.
    Both Dr's did a seperate operative report.

  2. #2
    no modifier would be necessary since they did totally separate body parts and notes.

  3. Default
    Thanks for clarifying this!!
