Hello - 82270 should billed when done as a screening, 82272 should be billed when done as diagnostic. Typically, the diagnostic is done in the office when the patient presents with a symptom (ie: stomach pain). The screening is normally sent home for the patient to complete over a certain time period. We have never billed 82271 so I am not sure what would qualify as "other sources." Hope this helps...
