Hi Everyone,

I just took a CPC practice exam and one of the questions that I always seem to get stumped on is whether or not the Radiologist at a hospital who performed an X-ray and provided the interpretation, does the Radiology code get Mod-26? The answer I chose, the surgery code had no modifier but the radiology code had Mod -26. I really would like to know if this was correct so any help would be appreciated! Thank you
:eek:

Yes the physician would use modifier 26. The facility reports the technical component.
