I also read up that the "unit" allowed per day is "one" for "80104" even if the kit being used is a 12 panel? is this correct?

I am agree on you, but still researching on your question to give you an updated result.

I checked on "MUE" and didn't find "80104", but I did on "G0434" X1.
Please let me know.

Marilyn, I had read in one earlier FAQ regarding 2011 CMS reimbursement and that has not implemented yet I think, I had already answered in your previous query about 2 months before regarding this, but now when I went through in CMS site, there is no any updation or information of 80104, only found G0434. You are correct, Marilyn. You could view below two links for my earlier and this answers.
