Billed 11422, 17110XS,& 17000XS51 to Medicare, all done on same day. Medicare paid for 17110 & 17000. Received rejection for 11422 that stated 'this proc requires a qualifying proc be rcd & covered'& 'not covered when performed same date as previously processed service'. What modifier should I use to get 11422 paid? (all procedures were in different areas of the body).

CPT 11422 gets bundled into CPT 17000. To specify it as separate procedure done on separate organ, please append modifier -XS with 11422.
