Urology clinic frequently bills 96402-59, J9217 & 99214-25. This year ins companies are bundling 99214 with 96402. Are others experiencing this? Is there a way around, or just stop billing 96402? Thanks.

I do not add modifier -59 to 96402 and I have not had any bundling issues lately. Logically speaking, why would you add modifier -59 to 96402. What other "procedural" code is CPT code 96402 distinct from in order to add the modifier?
