TEE modifier

Melissa Posted Thu 13th of August, 2015 10:08:28 AM

We recently started using 93355 for the TEE our anesthesiologist do. we are using 59-26 for the modifiers and are receiving denials. What is the correct modifier to use when the anesthesiologist is doing the TEE while a surgeon is doing a heart procedure?

CCI edits shows bundling of CPT 93355 into anesthesia codes for heart procedures. So, your anesthesiologist will not get reimbursement for TEE separately.
