    Default 80101 LCD that support medical necessity

    Does anyone have the link from medicare/cms for the ICD-9 codes that are covered for the 80101

    This is for the monitoring of patient compliance in a drug treatment or for chronic pain patients.

    If anyone can help me that would be a great help I am just going around in circles on the cms website.

    Per Payer Path this is what they have listed but when I click the LCD/NCD link I do not see any edits in place.
    For Medicare patients you need to use the code G0431
    3/22/2010 - Per Transmittal R653OTN, "Effective April 1, 2010, CPT code 80101 will no longer be covered by Medicare.

    Default Go434

    Does anyone know if the G0431 has now changed to G0434 (CLIA waived test)?
