I have a provider who wants to bill for CPT 81545 for documentation below but I think the procedure code should be 10005.

Provider stated " I do Afirma testing (CPT Code 81545) on thyroid nodules that initially come back as “follicular lesion of undetermined significance.” This is a highly specialized test that is different than an actual FNA biopsy as we send out the results to Afirma in San Antonio TX"

4186

Wouldn't Afirma bill for the lab code 81545, and not the provider?

Anyone familiar on correct coding and billing for this?
