The use of G0431????


Best answers

I have a question in regards to the use of G0431(drug screen). When multiple drug screens are charged using this HCPC code. If an edit is received to apply the appropriate modifier, I'm aware that modifier 59 can be applied if different specimen type but I have one that specifically states drug screen-urine. For the blood specimens, would that apply to the Tricyclic screen and Salicylates and if so, does this qualify for use of G0431? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
