Modifier correction

Bruce Posted Wed 12th of November, 2014 17:45:39 PM

I am billing a 28039 and 11423 for the left foot only. Not sure which modifier to use.

Code 28039 has higher RVU. In case you are billing for the provider, use modifier 51, multiple procedures with code 11423.

In addition, you may use informational modifier LT with each code since both procedures are performed on left foot.

Thanks !!
