CodeMap® Radiology Briefing: July 12, 2012
Past CodeMap® Radiology Briefings have included discussions of NCCI edits and how contractors utilize these edits to screen claims for medical necessity. Today's briefing revisits this topic and specifically examines NCCI edits and how providers may use the -59 modifier, in some cases, to overcome these edits. In the first installment of a two-part briefing, Ms. Stacie Buck explains in detail the rules and compliance implications providers must consider when adding the -59 modifier to a claim.

As always, please forward any questions, concerns, and/or suggestions via email to either Ms. Buck or myself.....
