First check with the facility to find out if these codes are being assigned through the chargemaster. Every facility I have ever worked in these codes come thru the chragemaster and are not coder assigned. The nurses enter charge code via a bar scanner most times or type it in when an injection or IV is administered, that charge code goes to the chargemaster and the CPT code is then assigned to that claim, also they have the modifiers then hard coded to go with these codes. It will just depend but this is traditionally how it is done in the facility.
