Unless I'm not understanding what you're asking, the simple answer is that you bill the codes without any modifiers. If the physician and the equipment are both part of the clinic you are billing for, this should be the appropriate way to bill. If you have any more info that might influence the decision, please post. :)

Hope this helps!

OK, good.

The question was sent to me worded exactly as I did in the originaly post. I thought the same thing. More than anything I worried whether I understood the question because the answer seemed too simple.

Thanks!!
