Code 12002 would you use Modifier 57 with office visits 99214?
SuperCoder Posted 1 Year(s) ago

Hi, 

Modifier-57 is used on an E/M services on the same day of or the day before a major surgical procedure when the E/M service results in the decision to go to surgery.

 Modifier-25 is used on an E/M services on the same day as a minor surgical procedure.

In the above scenario procedure performed is  minor procedure with global period of 0 days. hence, I would suggest append modifier 25 with E/M code.

 

Hope this helps!
