    Default 36568 with modifier 26

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a physician who is adament that he can bill the professional component of a PICC because he is not "employed" by the hospital.
    anyone agree?

    No. Being employed by the hospital has no bearing on modifier -26. 36568 is not a divided code.
