Modifier 22 on physician asst claim (as)

I am trying to find documentation out there that would allow use of Mod 22 on a Assistant surgeon's claim. I have googled and so forth, but nothing concrete. Please advise if you have any information.
Thank you!

I work for a general surgery office in IN, and I have used the -22 on physician asst claims before, and was paid.

Why would you be using the 22 on the assistants claim? Are you using the 22 on the primary surgeon's claim?

Yes. On both claims, I am appealing the surgeon's claim and before I appeal the Assistant's claim I wanted to be sure it's allowed and is there proof of this.

Yes. You can add the 22 modifier to both as long as your notes support the extra effort.
