When a patient has a BAL performed in the RUL and the LUL, can we bill 31624 two times with modifier 51 or 59 on 2nd line? Medicare has 1 MEU. Not sure if this code includes both side?

Everything published shows this code as a single code regardless of Rt or Lt or both. So bill with no modifier and 1 unit.
