    Default Bundling issue

    I took a look a these codes billing together and it looks to me like you will need the modifier 59 on the 93041 as it is a component of 93268. I have access to Customcoder.net via my job, so I took a peek. They have a tool that allows you to "validate" codes billing together so you can see what issues come up. It doesn't tell me which modifier, but since it's a bundling issue, I'm sure you need the modifier 59.
