Patient requires 2 antibiotic infusions per day, 1 in AM, 1 in PM. How do I code to avoid denial?

As long as the documentation shows the distinct administration times, use a 59 modifier - or an XE modifier if the payer accepts it - on the second administration code.

ETA - You still may have to provide the documentation to prove they were separate administrations given at different times of the day.
