When doing some ENT surgeries (ie Mastoidectomies, Radical Neck Dissections, Thyroidectomies, Parotidectomies) my physician documents in the surgery note that EMG monitoring was done either by placing needles or endotracheal monitoring. Does the EMG need to be seperately documented with a -26 modifier as he is performing the surgery in the hospital using their equipment? Does anyone have any information or documentation requirements for this type of service? I would appreciate your input.
Thanks,

Tracy
