WHEN BILLING THE 93306 AND 76536 IS IT APPROPRIATE TO USE A MODIFIER, MY SYSTEM IS NOT ACCEPTING THE 51 MODIFIER ?

Hi Anita. There is no CCI edit for 93306 with 76536, though that does not guarantee a particular insurance would not bundle them. If you know they will bundle and your system disallows a 51, you could try 59. I wonder also, if your system would allow a modifier on one code but not the other. Like maybe it thinks a code starting with "9" should not have a 51 or 59.
