Actually, in order to bill the full charge (technical and professional), your doc would have to be a radiologist in addition to being a pediatrician.
I worked for an Orthopaedic Surgeon for 15 years and he owned all the equipment...so, he paid for the all the supplies and paid an x-ray technician. We soon found out that he was only entitled to 2/3 of the total charge (without appending TC or 26) simply because he was not a radiologist. It does not matter that these docs can actually read x-rays - they are just not allowed to render an official report of the reading if they are not radiologists.
Hope this helps...bottom line - bill for the entire ball of wax but expect at least a 1/3 reduction.
