Yes, provider can bill this code with the modifier 26, provided the provider is a physician.
(This Test is generally performed by specialist physicians and comes under the list of test eligible for reimbursement when performed in a physician's office). Hope this answers your question. For more clarity need to provide us with the credentials of provider. Thank you.
