    Default Flu test a and b

    AAPC: Back to School

    Does anyone know the proper coding regulations under UnitedHealth for coding BOTH the Flu A and Flu B tests on the same DOS?

    UHC is rejecting the following:

    87400 x2 units
    87400 and 87400-91
    87400 and 87400-79

    Any thoughts?

    If you are doing the rapid influenza test(s) it should be coded:
