CPT Lab Test Codes for Antibody Tests

  • May 21, 2020

    Since cost shares are waived for COVID-19 treatment and serology/antibody tests, it’s critical to correctly code these claims.

    The American Medical Association (AMA) created new CPT lab test codes for antibody tests: 86328 and 86769. Please use these new codes when submitting a claim using any serology tests.

    There is a quick-reference flowchart that outlines Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) reporting for COVID-19 testing. The AMA site also outlines CMS payment policies and regulatory flexibilities related to COVID-19. Check the AMA COVID-19 resource center to stay up to date.

    Refer to our COVID-19 FAQ for addition update and guidance.
