botox bilateral billing

Rana Posted Wed 10th of July, 2019 14:06:04 PM
when billing for bilateral botox injections how do we bill to get the maximum allowed payment? using mod 50 does not seem to make a difference. should i bill for example ...................92012 57 with 64612 LT, 64612 RT, 64616 LT, 64616 RT, 64646 LT, 64646 RT....OR should i just use 50 modifier and double our original billed amount per code line to pay more. we bill 350.00 now for each line code?
