    Default Blood Panel

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our office wants to draw blood and send it to the lab for results. Can our office get paid for the draw and if so, what codes should I look into ?

    Thank you

    36415 is a venipuncture and 36416 is a finger/heel stick. You cannot bill these with a 99211 nor can you use a 99211 instead of these.
