Use of modifier 25

Tammy Posted Wed 19th of September, 2012 20:45:32 PM

If a patient is seen in consult in the ER before midnight, but EGD with FB removal '43247' is done after midnight, is modifier 25 still used on the consult since it has a different DOS?

Please note if surgery was done on the second calendar day of observation, modifier -25 is not required, as it applies only to an E/M service performed on the same day as the surgery or procedure.
