When billing a purchased service for Medicare, should the claim go on one ticket with split lines, so that the Purchased price can correctly go on the 1500, or should two claim forms be used. One for the PC and on for the TC with the purchased price?

If the billing is to be done for physician, then both purchases can be billed on same form with two different lines, i.e. CMS 1500 form. On other hand, if you are billing for Professional Component (PC)- bill it on CMS 1500 form, and if you are billing for Technical Component (TC)- bill it on UB-04 form, because this is facility side of billing, so UB-04 form need to be used.
