Drug screens are normally not done at home. They would need to be done in a lab or at your office. Urine drug screen cups have temperature strips on them which should be checked within a couple of minutes of the sample being given, to ensure that it is a valid specimen.

If the provider is on the zoom call and ensures the label is sealed prior to collecting the specimen and then reviewed immediately after collection, does that make it able to be billed virtually?

The provider can choose to take the risk or not. You don't know if the patient is going into the bathroom, and using someone else's urine. I wouldn't allow it in my office.
