MODIFIER 58

Charlene Posted Fri 18th of December, 2015 11:56:31 AM

DOES THE MODIFIER 58 BEGIN A NEW GLOBAL PERIOD? PLEASE REFER ME
TO A GUIDELINE IN WRITING, POSSIBLY FROM CMS.

Modifier “-58” may be reported with the staged
procedure’s CPT. A new post-operative period begins
when the next procedure in the series is billed.
