Modifiers for Free Flap Breast Reconstruction

November 14, 2019

Question:
Do the free flap breast reconstruction codes, 19364 and S2068, allow billing for surgeon, co-surgeon and assistant?

Answer:
CPT 19364 does allow payment for the surgeon, co-surgeon (modifier 62) and assistant surgeon (modifier 80, 82 and AS). However, many payors do not recognize modifiers 62, 80, 82 and/or AS on S2068.
