Because CPT code 84030 specifically says it's for PKU. But then some providers use cpt code 36416, 36415 or 36410
The PKU I'm referring to is in the form of heel stick for newborns, so that being said, which of the cpt codes I mentioned above is for the PKU?

For Heel stick Blood collection method, use CPT 36416 (Collection of capillary blood specimen (eg, finger, heel, ear stick) and for PKU, bill CPT 84030.
