The bottom line is that a port flush can only be billed if it is the absolute only procedure performed. The catch in your situation is: is it your lab? Do you bill for the labs? If so, you can't capture the port flush. If it is an outside lab on your premises and they bill for their own services, then your side can capture the port flush.
Coding - sometimes I think flipping burgers is a whole lot less stressful (and I've never flipped burgers for a living)...lol
Hope this helps a little.
