(3) When modifier code -26, professional component, is used with a radiology procedure, the payment shall be determined by multiplying the relative value for the professional component times the radiology conversion factor. (4) If a surgeon uses modifier code -47 when performing a surgical procedure, then anesthesia services were provided by the surgeon and the maximum allowable payment for the anesthesia portion of the service shall be calculated by multiplying the base unit of the appropriate anesthesia code by $42.00.
