-tc modifier in ama

  1. #1
    Default -tc modifier in ama
    Medical Coding Books
    wondering if anyone knows where i can find the definition of the -TC modifier in the AMA CPC book???

    I'm getting insurance denials(aetna) saying that they dont "recognize" that technical component modifier.

    any ama link or page # reference is appreciated!!!! (sorry, they wont accept linked defintion from just any site, they specifically said it needs to be from AMA or a printout of the page from the AMA book!!!)

    Is it possible you are using it for a procedure that does not have a recognized Technical Component?
