    Q0091 And 90000


    What if the Dr is doing a pap and handling Q0091 and other labs with handing of 99000. Are both handling fees able to be billed in this situation?
    Any help is appreciated.

    Medicare doesn't accept the 90000 code (which is only billable once to other payors)

    I only bill one or the other if same time of service. Usually just the pap. If a pap wasn't done I think it is appropriate to bill 99000 for other specimens collected.
