Modifier 59 Changes in PTP edits


Modification of the MCS Claims Processing System Logic for Modifier 59, XE Modifier, XS Modifier, XP Modifier, and XU Modifier Involving the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) Procedure to Procedure (PTP) Column One and Column Two Codes.

59 Modifier, XE Modifier, XS Modifier, XP Modifier, and XU Modifier are among the NCCI-associated modifiers. The Multi-Carrier System (MCS) currently requires that modifiers 59, XE Modifier, XS Modifier, XP Modifier, or XU Modifier be appended to the column two code of a PTP edit to bypass the edit. With the implementation of CR 11168,

“Medicare will allow modifiers 59, XE Modifier, XS Modifier, XP Modifier, or XU Modifier on column one and column two codes to bypass the edit”.
