Mammo and Bone Density....

Tanya Posted Fri 20th of April, 2018 09:17:09 AM
If a mammo and bone density is done the same day, do I need a modifier on the bone density? The practice has been putting modifier 59 on it and now the Doctor is questioning it.

Hi,

As per NCCI edits there is no CCI conflict between mammo and bone density, so 59 modifier is not required.

Thanks
