New in ofice Lab - pain management - confirmation drug testing

Gary Posted Tue 07th of July, 2015 12:30:31 PM

we are a pain management practice with a new in office laboratory. We now perform urine drug screen confirmations in our office. Are we required to bill the testing under the lab director that performs the test or under the provider that ordered the test?

You can bill for the urine screening codes under the #TIN of the pain management practice since you are doing the screening in house. Ensure that the lab is not billing for the TC component separately.
