Hey All,

I need some help.

1. What CPT code(s) would we use when a patient comes to the office to submit a urine sample that we send off to the lab?

2. What CPT code(s) do we use when a patient comes in for a lab draw and we take a urine sample as well and send both to the lab?

Thanks!!!!

The 81002 is for a urin dip test not for collecting a urin sample. You can use the 99000 but only if there is a cost for the physician office to collect and transport the specimen to the lab otherwise I would just use a nurse visit. As for the other specimen if you are drawing blood you can bill for the venipuncture code 36415.
