If we have a doctor in our group order a chest x-ray, but then it's read by another physician (our pulmonologist) is it correct to bill both the 71010-26 and 71010-TC if it's all done here in the clinic. We own the x-ray machine. I'm kinda in a debate w/ our office administrator about this. Would love an answer ASAP.
Thanks so much!!!!

Correct; 26 for the professional provider(pulmonologist) and TC for the equipment part in the clinic.

So, it's ok to bill this way even though both charges are going to be billed under the same Tax ID # ?

Yes with different modifiers
