We billed a 20610 for a trigger point injection in the global period. We also billed for the medicine. The injection was for a different diagnosis then what the surgery was for. Medicare paid for the medicine but not the injection. Should the injection have had a modifier and if so what?

Thanks
Mary

You may want to take a look at the 79 modifier: Unrelated procedure or service by the same physician during the postop period.
