I have an account that has 2 injections within a global period that were performed. The surgery was 29881 rt. DX: S83.231A. The injections were billed as 20610 78, RT DX:M25.561. Would 78 be an appropriate modifier to use to bill these injections. Or should we not have billed them at all because its in post op?

I have a provider that tells me we can bill it this way for commercial payers. If these injections were performed in the office how does it make sense to bill an unplanned return trip to the Op room during post op?
