    Question Venipuncture & PA Medicaid

    AAPC: Back to School

    I was wondering if anyone has had any trouble billing for a venipunture for Pennsylvania Medicaid or Unison of PA? The 36415 is not on the PA Medicaid fee schedule and they tell me they are using an alternate code. I am new to billing PA services. Does anyone have any experience with this?? Thanks you!

    Look in your HCPC II book there might be a S code for this I have never used one but that does not mean it is not there!
