The Procedures In Question Are Pulmonary Related Tests Done In The Office. If The Physician Is Performing The Test And Reading The Results There Would Be No Need For A Modifier 26. This Modifier Is Intended To Tell Them The Physician Service Is Separate Than The Technical Component. If He Is Doing Both You Would Not Need To Split. Hope I Understand Correctly.
