I noticed a "multiple procedure" modifier on my remittance advice but I did not submit it. The service was allowed, but should I have included this modifier on my claim?

Answer
No. CPT modifier 51 is a system-generated modifier. It is used to ensure multiple surgeries submitted for a patient with the same date of service are reimbursed correctly. We ask that providers not use this modifier.
