Master the use of distinct procedural service modifier -59, and understand when and how you can use alternatives. Providers, coders, and billers are often unclear on when to properly use modifier -59 and when the related X modifiers (-XE, -XP, -XS, and -XU) are a better choice for getting a claim accepted. This webinar will help them make more effective choices.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Fully understand the background and meaning of modifier -59 and the four X modifiers
  • Identify combinations of procedures that would be appropriate or inappropriate for modifier 59/X modifier use, as well as other modifiers that may be more appropriate
  • Use documentation to support the use of modifier 59/X modifiers
  • Justify use of modifier 59/X modifiers when challenged


  • Appropriate use of modifier -59 with common scenarios including:
  • Use for different anatomic sites
  • Use for different sessions or encounters
  • Use for different procedures or services
  • The importance of proper documentation to support the use of modifier -59
