multiple surgeon question

Renee Posted Fri 23rd of September, 2016 12:15:18 PM
I have a patient who wants to have two procedures done in one OR session. one of our providers would perform a carpal tunnel release, while the other performs an ankle procedure. so, they would not fit under either the -62 cosurgeon modifier or -66 surgical team modifier. is there a way to get them both paid? we are under one tax id# thank you!
