    Unhappy Pyelogram modifier - Md or radiologist
    New Call-to-action
    Hello,
    I am trying to figure out how apply a modifier for a pyelogram 74420 that was done during an inpatient procedure by the MD and then sent to the radiologist for reading. Does the MD get a 26 for performing the pyelogram? What does the radiologist charge for his reading?
    In a quandary......? Any advice is welcome!

    Thank you

    Default pyelogram modifier
    Hi,
    your MD wouldn't be able to charge. The hospital gets the technical portion(TC), and the radiologist reading the report gets to bill the professional portion or (26).
