FOR MEDICARE ONLY....WHAT MODIFIER TO WE PUT ON XRAYS DONE IN THE OFFICE WHEN BILLING UNDER A NURSE PRACTIONER, NOT INCIDENT TO? 26 OR TC?? WE HAVE BEEN PUTTING TC ON THE XRAYS WHEN BILLING OUR NURSE PRACTIONERS AS THEMSELVES BUT FOUND SOMETHING THAT SAID IT SHOULD BE 26? I THOUGHT THAT WAS ONLY FOR IF THE DOCTOR READ IT.....NOW WE ARE NOT SURE. JUST WANT TO GET IT CORRECT. PLEASE ADVISE WITH ARTICLES IF YOU CAN. :confused:

Modifier 26 is for reading x-ray, TC is for the equipment, no modifier (global) if both portions by same TIN.
