    According to CCI code 62270 (Spinal Lumbar Diagnostic) is included in Procedure code 96450(Chemotx Administration CNS.)However, under certain circumstances a modifier is allowed. Under what circumstances a modifier can be use(different entry)? Your input is appreciated. Thank You

    Add code 62270 only if performed via separate punture site during the procedure for a diagnostic study. Do not code 62270 additionally if  performed via the initial needle placement used for chemotherapy administration.
