CAR-T Administration Intrathecally

When CAR-T therapy is being performed, CPT 0540T is for the administration of the CAR-T product. When the product is being administered intrathecally via an Ommaya Shunt should CPT 61070 be reported separately for puncture of shunt tubing or reservoir? For other types of infusions, typically the access is included in the administration charge. I am seeking guidance on whether any/all access for the administration of CAR-T products is included in CPT 0540T.
