Marilyn Posted Mon 30th of September, 2013 20:24:25 PM

A 56 y/o comes in for physical. Isn't it V70.0 for diagnosis and the appropriate 993xx?

Yes, you can submit claims for urinalysis as part of a physical exam; include diagnosis V70.0 (Routine general medicalexamination at a health care facility). Check your payers' policies for specific guidelines regarding the tests. For example,some payers might require that you sent the sample to a specific network lab.
