Just need some clarification for coding of confirmation results. Are all result to be coded or only the drugs that pop positive/negative inconsistent, etc. Thanks for any help. New to Tox coding!!

For Definitive G0480-G04843 is billed based on the number of drug classes tested (any metabolite would be bundled into the class they fall under). Although the biggest issue out there is what is really medically necessary based on the patients history to run the number of drug classes checked and frequency of testing.

If its just Presumptive you pick G0477-G0479 based on the most complex method used.

So based on what your saying I shouldn't be coding by specific drug that returned positive results?

Thank you for your patience...I am at a loss.

You bill per drug tested, regardless whether the result is negative or positive.
