This is so not an area I am familar with, so I'm hoping that someone can help me. We are doing radioisotope therapy. Our endocrinologists are doing the dose calculations and the radiologist are giving the medication to the patient at the time of the test. (It's a contract thing) So they are billing the 79005.

We are pretty sure that we can bill 77300 for the calculation, however, we aren't sure if we would need to use the 26 modifier on that charge or not. If our docs are doing it in their office I would guess no.

Is there anyone who has had a similar issue. And are we even on the right track?

Help! Thanks.
