Thread: billing for influenza a and b lab tests

  1. #1

    Default billing for influenza a and b lab tests

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone had any carrier denials when billing for both a and b test?
    87804 & 87804-59. Billing from a primary care office.
    Thanks for your assistance.

    We are also using modifier QW on both to indicate a CLIA Waived office. Most carriers will not pay for tests outside of a lab unless the office has a CLIA certificate.
