Meditech Definitive Drug Testing Set Up

  • 1.  Meditech Definitive Drug Testing Set Up

    Posted 26 days ago
    Can any Meditech Hospitals (Client Server) share how they have their definitive drug testing chargemaster and claim set up for Medicare Definitive Drug tests that roll up into a G codes (G0480, G0481, G0482, G0483) depending on how many drug classes are screened for?    Meditech has been trying for 1.5 years to figure this out for us and they are unable to come up with a solution.  They are unable to send the chargemaster Alt G codes over to ABS and subsequently 3M. Thus coders do not actually see the codes that end up on the claim rather they see each individual drug screen test, which of course sets off all sorts of edits.  I would appreciate any advice or feedback.  Thank you.
