    AAPC: Back to School
    In a physician office, can you report 36415 for the blood draw when reporting a 85025 or is this included with the 85025?

    Good morning,

    I ran this scenario through the Encoder CCI unbundles program and it states that they indeed can be billed together.

    Hope this helps

    I agree they can be billed together, you may have some carries however bundle the blood collection code with the lab code.

    One thing I failed to mention is that if there is any other service provided - such as an E&M, they usually bundle the draw fee into that.

    Have a good one
