Have you seen the new 2011 CPT book with new CPT code for drug testing
80104 Mulitple drug classes other than chromographic; each procedure
What CPT has done has adopted Medicare's concept by duplicating the descriptor from
G0430 is the code you should be using if you are doing multiple drug classes using a drug test kit with quantity one. G0431 is if you are only testing a single drug class such as opiotes. The reimbursement issue of paying 100 plus per drug test with code 80101 and paying 20 dollars per class was the reason the G0430 was created and the same reason 80104 is going to be the code in 2011 so Medicaid programs and other non Medicare carriers are not paying out such high reimbursement for urine collection and testing. What you have to do is find out how much it costs for the cup you are using. Then how much the lab is charging your group or facility to read, confirm postives, and fax a report. What you might find is the lab might not be able to get their fee low enough so you don't losing money and you would have to switch over to a company or lab that does it own billing.
