- 16. Hi, can you talk about modifier -59 a bit. I seem to be one of those that overuse it. I have gotten a few questions wrong by adding it. I have the modifier download, it is very helpful. Maybe a couple of examples of when it is appropriate to use, and when it is not, so I can see the difference. And you always have tips that are easy to remember. Thanks so much. ANSWER Modifier – 59
- 17. Coders Replaced by Computers? I am wondering when coders are being replaced by computers? My doctor told me this just last week, so I am wondering how soon this will happen. I planned to pursue a coding career but I am wondering if it will be doable now. – Teresa ANSWER
- 18. I am working on an A/R project and I’ve noticed that BCBS is denying cpt code 36415 as inclusive with 85025. Not sure if I’m supposed to submit an appeal or adjusting it off as inclusive. Please explain when you would use 36400, 36415, and 36416. ANSWER 36415 and 85025
- 19. Intractable vs Refractory What is the difference between Intractable and Refractory? ANSWER
- 20. Hi Laureen. Quick question. I came across a hospital claim where a patient is being discharged from a normal delivery. What I would like to poke your brain on is, is it correct to use 650 with 99238? There were no complications. For some reason it does not look accurate but I don’t understand if you could please help!???! Thanks in advance. ANSWER Hospital Discharge
