Laboratory Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

What are the revenue codes for urinalysis?

Answer:

The revenue code for urinalysis is either 0300, 0307 or 0309. However, many Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) do not require third-digit specific revenue codes for laboratory testing. Your business office should check with your MAC to determine the revenue code policy in your state.
