What modifier would I use on bi-lateral avastin injections done on same day (67028 w/J9035 OD and 67028 w/J9036 OS)?

Well, J9036 not a code (I guess this is a typo error). J9035-OD and OS correct pattern. And modifier 50 is appropriate with CPT 67028 for bilateral procedure.

Check with the payer's policy to know whether you need to bill 67028 in a single line item or in 2 lines. If in a single line, bill 67028 - 50 (modifier). If 2 line items are allowed, bill 67028 - LT, 67028 - RT in 2 lines and then bill j9035 - OD and J9035 - OS .
