Laboratory Question for the Week of December 3, 2018


I know that urine drug presumptive testing may be reported with CPT codes 80305–80307, but I do not know how many units of service (UOS) should be reported. Can you help?


Codes 80305–80307 are reported “per date of service” and shall not be reported with more than one UOS per day.
