Strep test during office visit

Stephnaie Posted Wed 17th of September, 2014 08:33:13 AM

If a strep test (87880) is performed during an office visit, should modifier 25 be attached to the office visit? Thank you.

Thank you for your question.

Modifier 25 is not required on Lab services billed/coded with office visits on the same day.
