Can anyone please help guide me in the right direction to find a RVU list that our claims administrator could reference to obtain the RVU assignment for lab CPT codes?

Most lab codes don't have RVUs. Medicare pays on the clinical lab fee schedule, not the RVU based fee schedule.

You may find RVUs for a handful of codes in the lab range that can be billed with a -26 modifier for professional interpretation (ex - certain pathology codes).

However, if you're looking for RVUs for all labs, it doesn't exist.
