    Hi All

    An internal med doc I bill for wants to know what he would get reimbursed for a nasal swab test for flu before he purchases the kit. Does anyone know how this might be coded so I can look up fee schedules? I appreciate your help. Thanks

    Anytime~

    If this is the test you'll be performing...a word of caution. The reimbursement for this test was all over the place for our particular region. Some carriers paid very well and some paid just enough to cover the cost of the kit.
