With Medicare's reprocessing of claims for 2010, we are receiving demand letters for money paid on cardioversions done at the hospital (inpatient and outpatient) performed by our cardiologists.
Because the hospital owns the equipment, should we have billed with modifier -26? Thanks in advance for your replies and help. :D

I agree with Theresa, no modifier needed. Make sure they are not billing for cardioversion during a code and that it is an truly elective procedure with an appropriate diagnosis.
