genesight DNA testing
« on: November 15, 2017, 05:12:17 PM »
Hello:  Does anyone know if an MD Psychiatrist can bill for genesight DNA testing or is this only billable by the lab?  If so what CPT code can be used?
Also is the interpretation of the lab is billable and if so what code can be used?
Thank you in advance for you help.

This would be billed by the lab as 81479 the provider is only swabbing the patient. The interpretation is based on the time the provider spends with the patient on the visit.
