HELP with Urine Drug Screening!!!!!!!!

    I believe CPT such as 80301 would involve using a urine drug test cup in the office. The manufacturer or lab that you are purchasing from could indicate if it was CLIA waived test cup. CMS also has list of waived test to confirm the testing instrument. The below link has some good information. Additionally, 80301-80302 will be replaced in 2017.


    Below are the three new codes for 2017:

    CPT and descriptor now available for 2017

    80305 Drug test(s), presumptive, any number of drug classes, any number of devices or procedures (eg, immunoassay); capable of being read by direct optical observation only (eg, dipsticks, cups, cards, cartridges) includes sample validation when performed, per date of service

    80306 read by instrument assisted direct optical observation (eg, dipsticks, cups, cards, cartridges), includes sample validation when performed, per date of service

    80307 Drug test(s), presumptive, any number of drug classes, any number of devices or procedures, by instrument chemistry analyzers (eg, utilizing immunoassay [eg, EIA, ELISA, EMIT, FPIA, IA, KIMS, RIA]), chromatography (eg, GC, HPLC), and mass spectrometry either with or without chromatography, (eg, DART, DESI, GC-MS, GC-MS/MS, LC-MS, LC-MS/MS, LDTD, MALDI, TOF) includes sample validation when performed, per date of service

    The type of testing described in 80301 and 80302 typically require either moderate or high complexity CLIA certification. I am not aware of any CLIA waived testing methods that would be described by those codes.
