help with modifers for multi injections



I have a patient that had multi injection on the same day. I need help with what modifiers I would use.
20550-Lt (HAND)
20600-FA (LT THUMB)
20605-LT (LT WRIST)
So do I coded 20550-Lt, 20600-FA,51 , 20605-LT,51?
When I tried to bill it said I that the code 20600 was included with the other codes and to add another modifier. So I tried a 59 and it did not work. Help.

You may also want to check your edits again, 20550 is the code that is bundled with 20600 and 20605.
If it is a separate procedure, you may add modifier 59 to unbundle.
I imagine that is the only real problem with how you tried to bill it.
