    if the physician sends the patient home with a single or multiple cards for collection of feces speciamens and comes back the next week.

    you bill out the cpt 82270 blood occult. right.

    What if the patient has Medicare as the primary payor and the dx given is screening for malignant neoplasm and no documtentation exists about family history. The pt has a personal hx of bladder ca. All the Medicare payable dx I find relate to colonoscopys and not the 82270.

    If you give out the cards then most likely you process them in the office, so you would code 82270.

  7. Default 82270 82274 and G0328
    Hi guys...In my office if the patient has a take home kit we bill 82270 with a condition. If it is normal or screening we do G0328 with the V code. We also bill 82274 for IFOBT collected while patient is in the office only.and the same Gcode if test is screening and normal...Am I correct or does anyone have some helpful advice?
