    We are CLIA waived so I bill 80101 with corresponding units for each drug tested for bcbs and commercial. I bill Medicare G0434 with 1 unit. If not CLIA waived then append a GW modifier to your CPT or HCPCS code. Hope this helps

    The test is to be reported with a QW if your facility is CLIA waived...I do believe the -GW is for something completely different and should not be appended to these codes.
