    We just got this machine in our pediatric office. The salesman states we can bill both the pc and tc. Would we bill 92587 and 92587-tc? I think this would be the correct way. Thanks :d

    No modifier is necessary when billing for both the professional and technical component. Use a modifier 26 if professional ONLY, or modifer TC if technical ONLY.

    The code without any modifier assumes BOTH components. Bill only once.
