    Question 96372 with 20552 or 20553
    Exam Training Packages
    Is it correct to use a 59 modifier when doing not only trigger point injections but also a toradol injection for pain ? The site is noted for both on the note and the dx is the same.

    I believe for documentation sake, it would have to state that the IM injection was performed at a different site...
