Cpt code 43235 and cpt code 44015 modifier question

Joseph Posted Mon 02nd of July, 2012 13:16:04 PM

Does modifer 59 need to be added to 44015 (Jejunostomy Tube placement) when done with an egd (43235)? Since 44015 is an add on code I am not sure about this. Thanks for any help you can give me.

-59 is not required in this scenario. You can bill without appending -59.
