    Question Holter Monitor
    Medical Coding Books
    Hi all,

    Could you tell me if this is correct billing for a hospital holter monitor, our techs hooking up patient, with hopsital equipment. Our doctors doing the read/interpretation.


    Thanks for all your help!

    Neither code requires modifier 26 when billing a holter monitor @ a hospital. When in doubt of what code requires a modifier, look at the Medicare Part B fee schedule, it lists the allowables for all CPT codes, including codes that require a TC of 26 modifier.
