Hello, I am applying procedure codes 62311 and 77003 for this operative report. Do I need to add a modifier -51 or 59 for the 77003 procedure.? I typed both in CCI edit without modifier, and it was accepted. I am just covering all basis.

There is a more appropriate code for SI joint injection when provider performs it under fluoroscopic guidance.
Use code 27096, Injection procedure for sacroiliac joint, anesthetic/steroid, with image guidance (fluoroscopy or CT) including arthrography when performed.
