Code only the drawing of the blood

Shirley Posted Wed 11th of February, 2015 19:42:47 PM

A patient presents to the physician's office to have blood drawn for various lab tests. The venous blood is drawn by the medical assistant and sent to the lab with an order from the physician.

You should assign 36415 for collection of venous blood by venipuncture.

Hope this helps.
