Thread: Mrsa Screening Code

    Default Mrsa Screening Code

    AAPC: Back to School
    I code for an orthopaedic clinic. I am needing the code for the nasal swabbing for MRSA screening performed here in our physicians office. I am looking at 87641. Am I correct?
    Thank you!

    IF you perform the test in your office that seems to be the right code. If you are sending it out, then no. You can only report this code if it's done in your office.
