Per the Claim Scrubber, the biopsy code 11106 and 11102 cannot be billed together, they will disallow/bundle. If we are doing multiple sites, different biopsy types, can different biopsy codes be utilized/paid if a modifier is present to "unbundle"? If so is it more appropriate to use "59" or "XE". As well, I am being told that there is a "hierarchy" to how these codes are billed. Is that correct? If I do 11104, 11102, 11103 qty of 2 and 11106, same day, different sites, what is the correct set up for that claim?

I read that already. I was asking specifically about multiple biopsies on the same day, different types. Is it appropriate to bill and use the 59 modifier if there is a 11106 and a 11102 done on the same day, different sites.
