    Hi All,

    Can we use QW(CLIA WAIVED) modifier with the CPT 80101(Drug screen)?

    Thanks in advance for all the responses.

    According to the lastest list of CLIA waived tests, 80101 is not eligible for the -QW modifier.
    Here's a link for the lists of tests that can use the -QW modifier.
