When coding for bronchoscopy with the washing and brushing do use both CPT codes 31622 and 31623 together or do you just use one with a modifier?

31622 is not separately reportable with 31623 Its included.

Reason 1 - diagnostic scopes is bundled into surgical scope.
Reason 2 - NCCI rules regarding codes with "separate procedure" in the description

Under NCCI 31622 is a column 2 code to 31623 w/ a modifier indicator of 0 which no modifiers will bypass the edit.
