Rephased -colonoscopy question

When the physician is removing polyp with snare (45385) and he injects saline to lift same polyp-can we also bill for the 45381 saline lift since it is the same polyp. We have been taught to only bill for the most successful procedure.
I agree with JanelleThibodeau

When you use the saline lift to then snare the polyp, you bill both 45385 & 45381 and no modifiers are necessary. Been billing it like this for years without a problem.
