re: 47120 Liver resections

This is the response I received on another site in case the question comes up again.

Earlier this code can be billed with only 1 unit. But CMS has released new Medically Unlikely Edits (MUE) as 2. So you can bill this CPT® code with 2 units. Billing example:
Line 1: 47120 X 2 units.
OR
Line 1: 47120 X1 unit
Line 2: 47120 -51 modifier X1 unit.
