    Default blood glucose and fingerstick

    Is is appropriate to bill a 82962 (glucose, blood by glucose monitoring device cleared by the FDA specifically for home use) along with a fingerstick 36415?

    Thanks!

    36415 is a venipuncture, the fingerstick is 36416, and we were told these were bundled.

    I'm sorry, I got the terminology mixed up.

    The concern with with bundling of the 82962 and 36415. Are these bundled?

    Are you saying that 82962 is bundled with 36416?

    If so, where do you find that?

    I've been looking and I found it as an Anthem policy, but not a CPT bundle?
