If the radiologist that originally read the film and billed the interpretation request your advice and reading then you would bill the 76140. If a physician has performed the service in their office and provides a wet read but sends it to you for interpretation then you bill the same radiology code they used with the 26 modifier, they must bill using the TC, a wet read is part of their E&M. There can be only one official interpretation of the film unless the radiologist requesst a consult for an additional reading. When billing the 76140 you must have in your note the request from the radiologist for the consult and the reason for this. Most films do not need a second interpretation and you must have good documentation as to why this is being done.
