Hello!!
Any lab people out there? I am in need of some help.
We are primary care with an "in house lab". We do many urinalysis I our lab and many need (blood in urine, leukocyte etc.) further examination.
My doctors would like me to find out if there is way to get reimbursed for those labs that need further microscopic examination since this process is costing us additional time in staff.
Is there a cpt code out there that I don't know of that would pay additional for this?
When I look at CMS website cpt 81001 - Urinalyses complete with Microscopic examination, I don't see any reimbursement amount. We presently are just billing the cpt 81000.
Thanks in advance for any input or past failures even!
