Hi,


The scrubbing results when checked for CPT codes 37225 RT-59, 36245-50, 75710-26 are correct due to conflicts between the codes according to CCI EDITS.

However, modifier 59 if appiled to both the Cpt codes (36245-59, 75710-26,59) will be correct in the above mentioned scenario.The coorect coding for the above mentioned scenario will be

36245- 59

75710 - 26,59

37225 - RT

Hope this helps!
