    Default Interrogation of a pacemaker

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does code 93288(interrogation of a pacemaker) have a professional/tech split. Should I be using a 26 modifier?

    Yes. It does split w/a TC and 26.
    We often split these, as we have a tech that comes from another location and does the interrogation and then we have internists that perform the professional service.
