    Is it acceptable for a FP physician to perform and bill for an EKG tracing while another FP physician from the same practice performs and bills for the EKG's interpretation and report?

    I would say yes. Would need to use mod 26. If I am wrong sorry.

    Yes. One physician bills 93005 and the other bills 93010. If the practice is billing under a group NPI, I would submit separate claims to preclude processing problems with some payers.

    I do not believe you would use a modifier 26.
