Professional charges are designated with modifier 26 - Technical - TC. 
Global billing uses no modifiers. 
There are some codes that are professional only - such as the 88323 you

	Can anyone in histoland direct me on how to determine/designate a
CPT code
	as professional versus technical?  Hopefully, someone can send me to
	written criteria somewhere which can help determine this.  I sort of
	that a code such as 88319 (histochemistry) would be technical, while
a code
	like 88323 (written report on referred slide material) would be
	professional.  Can a single CPT code be both professional and
technical at
	the same time?

	Thank you all in advance!
