Question:

My neurosurgeon and an ENT doctor do pituitary surgeries together and the ENT wants to bill 62165 and 61548 together. Is it ok to bill both codes?

Answer:

No, it is not appropriate to report both codes together. Choose the single code that best describes what was done and each physician will append modifier 62 (two surgeons, or co-surgery) to that single code.
