If a patient has a colonoscopy and they have a polypectomy done where one polyp was taken off by cold biopsy and another was taken off by hot biopsy; do you code both the 45380 and the 45384 and then put the 59 modifier on the 45384?

Thanks!

59 goes on the 45380. RVU's are 6.86 for 45384 and 6.05 for 45380.
