Title: Billing Drug Screens for Sober Living or Treatment Centers
Post by: Scott on April 07, 2017, 12:37:47 PM
I run a company that sells medication and does billing for the medications that providers dispense at their office to their patient. We are also starting to bill for Work Comp Drug Screening for the last few years and it's profitable ($250 - $400 per drug screen). I've been hearing a lot about billing for drug screening for Sober living and/or drug treatment centers at a much higher rate and getting paid close to the amount billed (Bill out %k, get paid $3,500 per drug screen.) I'm looking to get into this business. What is the CPT code or billing code used to bill this amount?

I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with the type of billing that is being discussed here.  That is why we suggested that the patient contact the insurance carrier to find out exactly what is being billed for.
