    Help! we are billing G0430QW for 6-8 units medicare(cahaba) is denying these claims but they do not have an ncci policy for the corrections. Should we be using G0431QW w/ units instead?

    You have to bill with only quantity one for G0430 QW Medicare can not afford to pay 100 plus dollars every time a doctor orders a drug test, so they had to change the reimbursement to reflect what they consider to fit in their budget. G0431 is for doing a single drug class like if you are just testing for opiotes .
