Hi Wesley,


Per AMA CPT Manual for 2019, CPT codes 85598, 85610, 85670, 85730, 85732 are considered under Hematology and coagulation Procedures and CPT codes 86146 and 86147 are considered under Immunology.


Different labs are showing different CPT codes under Lupus Anticoagulant Panel. We did not come across any relevant information related to CPT codes considered in Lupus Anticoagulant Panel. We stick to the information provided to us by CMS, AMA and other authorized governing bodies.


Please find attached SuperCoder CPT assistant link which suggests us to use CPT codes 85597, 85598 and 85732.
