    Question NCCI edits

    When viewing NCCI edits, what does a "9" mean in the modifier column? It states 9 = N/A, but what does that mean?
    Thanks.

    Arrow N/A Not Applicable

    '9' means that there is no bundling between the two codes. Both codes can be reported without a 59 modifier.

    Thanks
