51700 during the global of a 52649

Laurie Posted Wed 01st of May, 2019 13:55:06 PM
Can you do a 51700 in the global days of a 52649? if so does it need a 58 or a 78 modifier?

Hi,

Thanks for your question.

As pe NCCI edits Q2 2019 codes 52649 and 51700 cannot be billed together in any circumstances even in global days as code 51700 is a column 2 code and is bundled into code 52649.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.
