Coded a claim in following order, please advise if correct.
43270-59 EGD w/ablation Tumor/mucosal lesion
43239 - EGD with biopsies
Would modifier be added to 43270 or 43239?
Thank you for your help.

Thanks for your question. According to CCI edits, no modifiers are needed when these two codes are billed on the same date of service. Hope this helps.
