    Default 81002 & 86294 Clia Waved Tests

    AAPC: Back to School
    My Billers have tried getting these 2 codes paid Multi. times now,
    and they are still getting Denied . They have the QW on them.

    I saw an old Post from over a year ago, that 81002 was not going to be paid by Medicare.
    Has anything changed or is it still not paying.

    And if anyone has any info on 86294-QW would be helpfull !

    Thanks in advance
