Billing Guidelines For Drug Assays

The Definitive Drug Class methods are able to identify individual drugs and distinguish between structural isomers but not necessarily stereoisomers, such as gas chromatography with mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography mass spectrometry.

The AMA specifically reminds that methods such as immunoassay or enzymatic methods are EXCLUDED from being considered definitive drug
testing (i.e., they are presumptive).

When chromatography is used, each combination of stationary and mobile phase is to be counted as one procedure.

This drug class testing also allows for qualitative as well as quantitative or a combination of qualitative and quantitative values. The Definitive Drug Class Listing provides the drug classes, their associated codes, and the drugs included in each class.

Each category of a drug class, including metabolite(s) if performed (except steroisomers), is reported once per date of service. If a metabolite is not listed in the table, the AMA states to report using the code for the parent drug.

Drug class metabolite(s) is not reported separately unless the metabolite(s) is listed as a separate category in the Definitive Drug Classes Listing (e.g., heroin metabolite).

Definitive drug procedures that are not specified for the code range 80320-80373 should be reported using the unlisted definitive procedure codes 80375, 80376, 80377, unless the specific analyte is listed in the Therapeutic Drug Assays section (80150-80203) or Chemistry section (82009-84830) sections.

In other words, you are not to use the unlisted definitive codes if the drug is listed in either of those sections.
