Our office will be doing the influenza testing for A and B w/ CPT code 87804-- my question is that if we do the test for both A and B strains how do we code this? We will be using CPT code 87804-- BCBS states to use modifier 91, others have stated to use Modifer 59. if your opinion which is the correct way to code this ? Thanks in advance for any help :)

use modifier -59 on the second one. It's the proper one to use and is paid by most carriers
