AMA Drug Testing CPT© Codes for 2015

The AMA CPT© Editorial Panel has posted the 2015 drug CPT codes on their website. There are new, revised and deleted codes in the Drug Testing, Therapeutic Drug Assay and Chemistry sections of the pathology and laboratory section of the CPT manual. The codes are not finalized, but are posted for comment by anyone who is impacted by the new codes.  There are 65 new codes, 29 deleted codes and 6 revised codes on the list. Medicare will be taking suggestions for pricing of these new codes in their July open door meeting for 2015 fees. The hope is that the new qualitative drug codes can also replace the Medicare G0341 and G0434 drug screen codes to avoid two separate coding schemes for drug screens.

The qualitative drug screen codes (80100, 80101 and 80104) are being deleted and replaced with new codes. The 80102 drug confirmation code is also being eliminated to be replaced with drug specific CPT codes. A useful table will be included in the code set that specifies which drugs are identified for each drug or drug class.

Paul Keoppel was the CLMA representative on the AMA Quantitative Drug Testing Workgroup and a member of the CLMA Legislative, Compliance, and Reimbursement Committee.
