Can you bill 36818 and 36832 together with a modifier 59 on 36832? This is a Medicare pt.  NCCI edits say a modifier is ok.  My documentation supports the separate incision for the revision. We have in the past always used modifier 51 on 36832 and have been paid.  Same dx of 996.73 and 585.6.  Now all of sudden it is being denied.  Any ideas would be great.  Thanks.  Jan

Is this correct coding:  36821.RT and 37607.59.LT, done same day, same session.
37607 would have a different dx 996.73 vs. 585.6 for 36821.  This is a medicare pt.  Thanks for any help.
