    Hi Everyone:

    Need help! I have never billed for a chest x-Ray in our office. The dr just purchased a portable machine & he says he going to 2d & 2 view but we are going to transmit the x-Ray to another facility digitally. How do I bill for this 1? Would it be 71020-TC only B/C we are only taking the x-Ray w/no interp.

    Thank you

    Yup - that is correct. 71020 is a PA and a lateral view.
    (I do cardiology interventional billing now but I have 9 years radiology experience also) Whomever does the reading will add a 26 mod, you are correct in adding the TC.

    Good luck!!
