TC Modifier on TOB 013X
I am hoping to get some clarification on billing -TC modifiers on a facility claim. We currently bill for the facility component of services such as Radiology, Lab & Pathology on a TOB 013x, with the appropriate revenue code but we don't add a -TC modifier on the claims. I found conflicting information that stated that billing without the -TC is considered "global" even if billed on a TOB 013x. The issue here is that we don't want to be billing "global" because the physician bills his professional component separately under his own TID. I have always understood that -TC and -26 modifiers are unnecessary on UB claim and thought it was assumed to be technical only when billed of a hospital claim. Does anyone have any resources or guidance on this issue? I would really appreciate any assistance or validation.
