    If coding two injections, would you list 90772 twice with a 59 modifer, or list once and use x2?

    Thanks for any help!

    Actually that code has been deleted. Therefore, you would code 96372 and then 96372-59. Hope this helps!

    yes, I agree with Teresa - you'd use a .59 on the second admin/injection. (and the 90772 is deleted for 2009)..

    we used to code it x2 - but had payment issues. We started using the .59 modifier on the second adminstration and it fixed the payment issues. So, we've continued to use the .59 on the additional administration.

    We had those same issues, and as Donna states the 59 fixes it. So, that's what we do also.
