Pharmacy Compliance Question of the Week


What are the revenue codes for drug testing?


The proper revenue codes for drug testing are 0300, 0301 or 0309. Most Medicare contractors do not require third-digit specific revenue codes. Your business office should check with the MAC in your state to determine its policy and requirements.
