  • Coding for in-office urine drug testing is anything but simple. In fact, many practices see denials for these services due to the incorrect use of these complex codes. And if you haven't correctly incorporated these codes for your practice, get ready for more denied claims, delayed payments and continued headaches.

    But making sure you code your in-office urine drug testing correctly doesn’t have to make your head hurt. Coding expert, Joan Gilhooly, MBA, CPC, CPCO, has prepared a 60-minute online training that will walk you through how to report these complicated charges accurately the first time. She not only has 30+ years of coding experience, but she was also a medical technologist – so she really understands what you need to use these codes correctly.

  • Here are just a few of the practical, plain-English tactics you’ll receive by ordering Joan’s online training session:

    • Master terminology (i.e. "qualitative vs. quantitative" and "presumptive vs. definitive") to help you choose the right code
    • Identify which CPT code(s) or code ranges are used with each different type of testing method to reduce your denials
    • Choose the right code depending on "presumptive tests" performed by optical (visual) observation vs. those performed by instruments
    • Avoid denied claims for lack of medical necessity based on the different types of urine drug testing
    • Correctly assign codes drug/drug class when definitive testing is performed and head off an audit
    • And much, much more…

    As an added bonus, Joan will give you the tactics and terminology you need to ensure that the urine drug tests you send out are accurate the first time as well. She’ll also give you the inside scoop on urine drug tests that the lab vendors may not want you to know, potentially saving you and your patients a ton of money.

    Ordering this online training means you won’t need a clinical chemistry or laboratory science degree to master the in-office urine drug test codes. You’ll get a step-by-step breakdown so you can start coding them correctly immediately. Don’t wait, order today.
