This all depends on if the procedures can be defined as distinct from each other per the patient's medical record.
For your examples 1 and 2....
If the IV pushes were done in different sessions, then you'd put the modifer on the sessions that were different from one another. I.E. If 96374 was done on a seperate day from both 96375, then you'd code 96374 for the first day and 96375-59 twice for the second day.
Another way to use mod -59 is if the same procedure is done on a different body part or organ.
If an IV push is given with more than one substance on the same day, you're not going to be able to use mod -59 because the nurse/doctor will not remove the IV for each push only to place the needle somewhere else. Once an IV is in, it's usually in until all treatments are done. If this were true, then you would code without the use of mod -59.
The same would go for your examples 3 and 4.
Hope this helps.
