Using a Modifier 53 appropiate

Tanya Posted Fri 24th of August, 2018 08:08:19 AM
Patient was scheduled for a Biopsy in the office. The cpt code is 19083. Patient was given a local anesthesia. The radiologist had to stop the procedure because the area of concern was not there. Patient has Medicare insurance. Can I send to the insurance 19083-53?
