Let's say this is a 2v chest, 71020 that was done. The taking of the xray is 71020-TC and you did that part. The written interp of the xray is 71010-26. Is the written interp report usually dictated by your physician or a Radiologist? Was this done prior to giving the films to the patient?
If both -TC and -26 componets were completed then your claim to Mcare is correct as 71020. If the written interp report was not done, then you must correct your claim to Mcare to only 71020-TC
