SARS-CoV-2 Testing Is Just One of the 2020 Update Topics in April CPT® Assistant
2020-05-21

The latest CPT® Assistant starts with information from the special edition about new SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 testing code 87635. But if you’ve already mastered that knowledge, there’s still plenty to learn in the April 2020 issue of this authoritative resource. Path/lab coders can read about UGT1A1 gene analysis. All of you who code for hypertension won’t want to miss the article on self-measured blood pressure monitoring. And balance-testing coders will want to review the computerized dynamic posturography article.
