Laboratory Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

I know that urine drug presumptive testing may be reported with CPT codes 80305–80307, but I do not know how many units of service (UOS) should be reported. Can you help?

Answer:

Codes 80305–80307 are reported “per date of service” and shall not be reported with more than one UOS per day.
