Which modifier would you use of the four we are given for CMS would you use for two colonoscopy procedures 45385/45380?

Use modifier XS – “Separate Structure, A service that is distinct because it was performed on a separate organ/structure”. This is applicable if biopsy performed on lesion different from the polyp or tumour treated by snare.
