Intraoperative Neuromonitoring@ Remote Location

Best answers
Our neurologists will soon be involved in providing intraoperative neuro monitoring services. We have employed an intraoperative neuromonitoring technician who will take our equipment to the OR and our neurologists will remotely monitor activity from our office. Some of the CPT codes used would be 95925, 95926, 95927, 95928, 95860, 95861, 95863, etc.

Question 1: Since we own the equipment and are remotely monitoring may we bill global (for both the professional and technical component)?
Question 2: What is the most appropriate place of service...the neurologists are remotely monitoring in the office, the equipment/technician are in the hospital OR.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
