We sent in a claim for a radiofrequency ablation on 2 cervical levels performed on the right side, but we did not put modifier RT on claim form.
Now doctor does Left side of the same cervical levels within the 10 day global of the first procedure.
My question is what is the best way to send the second claim to the insurance carrier to avoid getting denied as duplicate claim?
Just send claim in as 64633 LT and 64634 LT and note on claim this is not duplicate? or also add modifier 59 to these procedure codes?

Just Mention -LT modifier on your claim lines and mention note that this is not the duplicate claim and is different from the previous procedure.
