Good afternoon Everyone,

I'm new to Allergy Testing, would anybody be kind enough to explain to me what the difference is between CPT codes 95018 (Allergy testing, any combination of percutaneous (scratch, puncture, prick) and intracutaneous (intradermal), sequential and incremental, with drugs or biologicals, immediate type reaction, including test interpretation and report, specify number of tests) and 95004 (Percutaneous tests (scratch, puncture, prick) with allergenic extracts, immediate type reaction, including test interpretation and report, specify number of tests). I really don't know what to look for when auditing these type of procedures.

Best Regards,

Vanessa

95004 is for just percutaneous tests and 95018 is a combination of percutaneous and intracutaneous tests.

when coding 95018, for intracutaneous with drugs, is the administration of the drug 96372 separately billable or is the administration included with CPT 95018?
