The injection is done to lift a flat polyp for retrieval. The india ink mark was done to mark the spot of the polyp because of the "boarders" found when the polyp was retrieved. Can I bill for both since it was done for two different purposes?

No, we can't take both the injection code for the same procedure on the same anatomical region.
