This is not my answer but on the track similiar to this:

 

 

There are many different codes that are in the pathology and laboratory sections and the medicine section. If the patient has a urinalysis that was done by a physician in a facility that they do not own then the CPT code would be coded as 81000-26 for the professional (physician's interpretation) component. It would be coded as 81000-TC for the technical component for the facility's equipment.

If the patient had a Bundle of His recording and it was done by a physician in a facility that they do not own then it would be coded as CPT code 93600-26 for the interpretation. It would be coded as 93600-TC for the technical component for the facility's equipment.

No I do not believe that the professional and technical component must be performed by the same person. If they were performed by the same person then they would not need a modifier because they would get reimbursement for both components so you would not use the modifier. No they do not need to be performed in the same location either because the facility can do the procedure in a hospital and then the physician can do the interpretation at a different place, such as their office or home.
