    Can we (family practice) charge for a Hemoccult 82270 if we don't have a CLIA license?

    Thanks

    Could we if we had a CLIA license or am I correct in understanding that all the 8000 codes are strictly Path/Lab codes only?

    In order to bill and receive payment for certain laboratory tests in the 80xxx series, yes, you will need a CLIA number in order to get paid - for Medicare and Medicaid. Keep in mind, CLIA is maintained by CMS. If a CLIA waived lab is billed to Medicare or Medicaid - you HAVE to have a CLIA number on the claim to get paid. Some private payors, don't require this.

    Great...thank you. It's for a private insurance. I actually just got paid today on it from BCBS Florida, so that answered my question when I got my remits in this afternoon.... Thank you all!
