    Default Coding for H Pylori test kits
    Exam Training Packages
    We are giving some of our patients an H Pylori test kit to take home get a specimen and return to the clinic. We have never done these before. Please advise as to how to code. Thanks.

    Question
    Would this happen to be the PYtest Kit from Kimberly-Clark using urea labeled C-14?

    It's the kit we use. We report 78267 for giving the pill and breath kit. It is sent out for 78268. Let me know if you want more info on our test and codes.
