Blood Draw

Charlene Posted Wed 09th of September, 2015 09:59:10 AM

Is there a CPT/HCPCS code other than 36415 for blood draw when no other service is performed? The patient will be seen by physician next week. CPT 36415 is not on the NC Medicare physician fee schedule.

Earlier G0001 was used instead of the CPT 36415, which is deleted now. Well, yes, CPT 36415 not on MPFS for NC. So, in that case you can code the office visit and pathology codes series 80047-80076 according to the procedure performed. Hope it helps!
