Facilities are required to use modifiers for HCPCS code R0075 (transportation of portable X-rays). The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) created the modifiers so that a facility can report the number of residents served during a single trip. You should use these codes only if the X-ray equipment was actually transported to the nursing home.
