What if the patient has Medicare as the primary payor and the dx given is screening for malignant neoplasm and no documtentation exists about family history. The pt has a personal hx of bladder ca. All the Medicare payable dx I find relate to colonoscopys and not the 82270.

82270 82274 and G0328

Hi guys...In my office if the patient has a take home kit we bill 82270 with a condition. If it is normal or screening we do G0328 with the V code. We also bill 82274 for IFOBT collected while patient is in the office only.and the same Gcode if test is screening and normal...Am I correct or does anyone have some helpful advice?
