I would use the money modifier (52) then the prof comp(26).

I agree with Rosalie...use the modifier that drives the payment first. In this case -26 because it is telling the payer that you did the professional component (not global and they won't bundle with the technical component).

yes, I agree with Rosalie and Lisa - they're correct, the .26 professional side is always (same for technical side if coding that side, TC first)....then the other mods follow.
