Should 90772 diagnostic injection be coded with 11900 injection, intralesional? Have a provider that was told to do so by previous coders. What is your opinion?

well, my first thought was "no way" ... but then I checked the NCCI Edits and low and behold - you can! ! ! ... not sure why you would but according to the edits, you can. The .59 modifier would have to go on the 90772 - So, I'm sure the 90772 would have to meet the requirements for use of the modifier .59...

the things we learn hey!
