    Question Otoacoustic emissions test

    AAPC: Back to School
    We just got this machine for our office. I was told to bill for both the PC and the TC. Would we bill 92587 and 92587-TC in that case??? Just wanted to be sure. Thanks

    We own the OAE equipment at our office and we only bill the 92587, no modifiers; I think that you would only bill the -TC if you were operating the eqipment only vs. if you owned the equipment AND were reading the tests at your office.

    My office also has the OAE equipment and we also just bill 92587-with no modifiers. Hope this helps!

    I have a question regarding this. Our office owns and read the report for 92587 but Medicaid will not pay unless we provide a TC or 26 modifier. Confused on which on to put?
