    Medical Coding Books
    We have a moderate complex lab and we are using an assay machine to do qualitative urine drug screens. We do 12 test and one validity test. We would like to know, because we are using an assay machine is this considered moderate or high complex testing and what is the appropriate code G0431 or G0434? Thank you!! Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Most analyzers, based on the reagents used, are considered high complexity. Therefore based on CMS guidelines the appropriate code to use would be: G0431
