Modifier 25

We are getting conflicting answers about the use of the modifier 25 on E/M levels in the ED.

We have been told that if the patient has labs only do not attach modifier 25, but for everything else you do.

then we have been told that you do not attach modifier 25 for injections and infusions, and the only radiology test you attach it for is if a chest x-ray is done.

Could you give us guidance for the modifier 25?

thank you
