Okay, but that wasn't my question. Who are you billing for? Are you billing for a technician that performed the scan? Is it a hospital department? Separate facility? Are you billing for a professional interpretation?

Was the ONLY denial "required modifier missing", or were there other denial/remark codes attached?

26 is the correct modifier as long as you're not billing for a facility. Perhaps it's the wrong denial code... have you checked the diagnosis to make sure it's a screening dx and not a diagnostic dx?
