INR testing @ Lab


Best answers
Good morning!

One of my physicians asked an interesting question. She was wondering if we can bill/charge for reviewing and medication management for a patient who has their INR drawn at a Lab or draw station, not in our office. The lab or patient will call our office with the result, then it is up to my physicians to decide if a change is needed in the current medication.

I found a previous post that indicates when INR's are done in the patient's home, but I am not sure if those codes would be applicable. The previous post indicated using G0250 or 99091 once per month. The wording on both codes states home INR testing.

Any ideas? Or has anyone had success with the "home testing" codes???

Thanks for your help and input!
