Fee rates for P9603 and P9604

The allowance per mile was computed using the Federal mileage rate of $0.545 per mile plus an additional $0.45 per mile to cover the technician’s time and travel costs. MACs have the option of establishing a higher per mile rate in excess of the minimum $1.00 per mile if local conditions warrant it. The minimum mileage rate will be reviewed and updated throughout the year, as well as in conjunction with the CLFS, as needed. At no time will the laboratory be allowed to bill for more miles than are reasonable, or for miles that are not actually traveled by the laboratory technician. 

The per flat-rate trip basis travel allowance (P9604) for 2018 is $10.00.

See examples for appropriate reporting of codes P9603 and P9604.
