If you're billing for the physician, you would need to add a modifier 26 in order for this to be paid in a facility place of service. Since this code has a technical and professional component, only the hospital can bill for the technical portion since they would be responsible for providing any of the equipment used. The physician may bill for the interpretation only, if performed.
