Hello everyone. I was wondering if there is a special way to bill Medicare for in office post op x-rays? I am under the impression that neither a TC not a 26 is needed since the office owns the machine and the physician reads the x-ray. Medicare keeps coming back stating that the service (x-ray) needs to be billed to another carrier. Am I missing something here? Any comments would be helpful.

There is no special way to bill these that is different from other x-rays. If your denials states that you need to bill another carrier, that means your claim was submitted to the incorrect payer, not that there is a problem with the coding.
