Gastroenterology billing can be complicated due to the number of modifiers that are applied to medical bills in this specialty. Being the branch of medicine that deals all disorders affecting the gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth to the anus, and especially the digestive system itself, there are a wide range of diseases and disorders, and a multitude of different procedures to document.
It is important when compiling medical coding in this specialty to distinguish between colorectal cancer screenings and colonoscopies, motility and gastroenterological function studies, and applying modifiers for all the procedures correctly. It is quite common for modifiers 51 and 59 to be confused as the first is for multiple procedures in the same session by the same provider, while modifier 59 is used to show distinct procedures on the same date.
