Does anyone happen to know what the correct CPT code is for a Cholestech check? My sites have been using 82962 for a meter device, but this seems to be for an accu check. Accuchecks and Cholestech checks are two different things. Any guidance? Thanks.

I agree that 82465 would be the code since a cholesterol is what you're doing. 82962 is for a glucose. There is also coding and reimbursement information on www.cholestech.com and it confirms this. Very informative website. It's nice when they put info together like that.
