    Can I use modifier 59 for the Evaluation and Management Encounter? NO, you do
    not appened modifier 59 to an E/M code! Use instead the Modifier 25 - (to identify
    a significant, separately identifiable evaluation and management service
    performed on the same day as another procedure or service by the same
    provider); or Modifier 24 - (to identify an unrelated E/M services during the post-
    operative / global period beginning the day after a procedure, when the E/M is
    performed by the same physician)
