Newborn Screening - the NYS Newborn Screening test in the office

Morning,
One of our pediatricians perfomed the NYS Newborn Screening test in the office. I am searching for the appropriate CPT code and am leaning towards the code for speciman handling, since they aren't running the tests just pricking the foot and using the proper paperwork. Anyone else have thoughts on this?
Thank you for your help!
-Kathleen

We dont do this in our office but it sounds like your right.If you office is not doing the test I would bill for handling only.

You would want to use 99000 for the lab handling fee and 36416 for the venipuncture. :)
