I am researching the use of code 77336 (Medical Physics Consultation). I see the Medicare Coiverage Determination states:

77336 and 77370 are technical services only and are payable by Medicare Part B only in settings in which the technical component is payable, i.e., in the freestanding radiation oncology center that employs its own radiation physicist.

Are both the facility and the physician entitled to bill for this code? Is the TC modifier required or is it built into the Medicare reimbursement? Can someone point me to reference material?

I know I sound dumb, but this is a totally new arena for me.
