CPT 20550 billed with 64455

Terri Posted Fri 05th of August, 2016 10:07:34 AM
I need to ask is it ok to bill out both CPT 20550 and 64455 together on the same date of service for the same patient? Also if this is ok to bill together should I use modifier 59 or 51? Thank you so much for your help. It is much appreciated.

Hi Cindy, As per CCI edits CPTcodes 20550 and 64455 cannot be billed together. However, if the documentations supports different site or location, then we can bill with modifier 59. Thank you.
