Effective July 1, 2012, the Laboratory and Radiology Provider Manual will read as follows: 87502 will be allowed with one payment of 88798 for RSV virus, 87300 DFA, as well as a culture 87252/87254. Panels under CPT code 87798 are billed as one unit. Panels will be authorized as one payment under code 87798 (i.e. H1N1 influenza, multiplex respiratory panel). Panels are paid as one unit; therefore, listing each test or organism within the panel on a claim will result in the denial of the claim. If more than one panel is performed and is eligible for payment under 87798 (i.e. H1N1 and PCR on the same client) the panels must be billed on separate lines. To receive payment for two or more panels performed under 87798, the first panel is to be billed on the first line as one unit. Any additional units are to be billed on the second line with the corresponding units. Manual review will be required on all claims billing for more than one unit under 87798.
