Thread: DXA interpretation and documentation requirements

    Default Dexa documentation and interpretation

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is a physician able to bill for interpreting these findings, if yes - so we need to add a 26 modifer? What are the documentation requirements and do you know where I can obtain the specs to present to the physicians?
