    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi, would i use a modifier 59 on the 2nd p/c when coding both 90765 (IV) & 90772 (injection)? I got an edit so thought it was appropriate to use mod. 59.

    Would it be possible to provide any further details of the procedures done?

    If the Toradol injection was actually done SubQ/ IM, I believe it would be considered a separate site and would add "59" to 90772.
