2016 Deleted Lab Codes List

82486 Chromatography, qualitative; column (eg, gas liquid or HPLC, analyte not elsewhere specified)

82486 has been deleted. For a qualitative column chromatography procedure, use the appropriate specific analyte code, if available, or 82542

82487 Chromatography, qualitative; paper, 1-dimensional, analyte not elsewhere specified

82488 Chromatography, qualitative; paper, 2-dimensional, analyte not elsewhere specified

82487, 82488 have been deleted. For a paper chromatography procedure, use the appropriate specific analyte code, if available, or 84999

82489 Chromatography, qualitative; thin layer, analyte not elsewhere specified

82489 has been deleted. For a thin layer chromatography procedure, use the appropriate specific analyte code, if available, or 84999

82491 Chromatography, qualitative; column (eg, gas liquid or HPLC); single analyte not elsewhere specified, single stationary and mobile phase

82491 has been deleted. For a quantitative column chromatography procedure, use the appropriate specific analyte code, if available, or 82542

82492 Chromatography, qualitative; column (eg, gas liquid or HPLC); multiple analytes, single stationary and mobile phase

82492 has been deleted. For a quantitative column chromatography procedure that detects more than one analyte, use a single specific code that represents all of the analytes, if available, or one unit of 82542 for all of the analytes.

82541 Column chromatography/mass spectrometry (eg, GC/MS, or HPLC/MS), non-drug analyte not elsewhere specified; qualitative, single stationary and mobile phase

82541 has been deleted. For a quantitative chromatography procedure with mass spectrometry that only detects a single specific analyte, use the appropriate specific analyte code, if applicable, or 82542

82543 stable isotope dilution, single analyte, quantitative, single stationary and mobile phase. 

82543 has been deleted. For a quantitative chromatography procedure with mass spectrometry that only detects a single specific analyte, use the appropriate specific analyte code, if applicable, or 82542

82544 stable isotope dilution, multiple analytes, quantitative, single stationary and mobile phase. 82544 has been deleted. For a quantitative chromatography procedure with mass spectrometry that detects more than one analyte, use a single specific code that represents all of the analytes, if applicable, or one unit of 82542 for all of the analytes

83788 Mass spectrometry and tandem mass spectrometry (MS, MS/MS), analyte not elsewhere specified; qualitative, each specimen. 

83788 has been deleted. For a qualitative mass spectrometry or tandem mass spectrometry procedure, use the specific analyte code, if available, or 83789

88347 Immunofluorescent study, each antibody; indirect method. 88347 has been deleted. To report, see 88346, 88350

G0431 Drug screen, qualitative; multiple drug classes by high complexity test method (e.g., immunoassay, enzyme assay), per patient encounter

G0434 Drug screen, other than chromatographic; any number of drug classes, by clia waived test or moderate complexity test, per patient encounter

G0464 Colorectal cancer screening; stool-based DNA and fecal occult hemoglobin (e.g., KRAS, NDRG4 and BMP3). This code has been replaced with code 81528: Oncology (colorectal) screening, quantitative real-time target and signal amplification of 10 DNA markers (KRAS mutations, promoter methylation of NDRG4 and BMP3) and fecal hemoglobin, utilizing stool, algorithm reported as a positive or negative result.
