Laboratory Question for the Week of December 28, 2015

Laboratory Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

Can you provide the drug-abuse testing codes you mentioned in last week’s answer or where we can find them?

Answer:

First, go to this website: https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Medicare-Fee-for-Service-Payment/ClinicalLabFeeSched/index.html. In the left column, click on Laboratory Public Meetings, then go to the Downloads section and look for the file named “Calendar Year (CY) 2016 Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule (CLFS) Final Determinations.”
