  • UB04 Instructions
Changes for 2015 Laboratory Codes 80300 - 80377Use SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).

This notice is to advise Idaho Medicaid Providers of the current decision regarding coverage of the 2015 new CPT laboratory codes after date of service 2/28/2015.  Effective 3/1/2015, Idaho Medicaid will not cover the new 2015 laboratory codes 80300 through 80377 (63 codes) until Medicare pricing is available.  For claims billed for dates of service prior to 3/1/2105, and using CPT® codes 80300 – 80377, an invoice is required to be attached.  This is to enable pricing for the new CPT® codes which do not currently have a price on file.


CMS has created a series of G-codes with pricing that may be used in place of the 80300 – 80377 CPT® codes effective 1/1/2015.  For dates of service 3/1/2015 and after, Idaho will require providers to use the appropriate HCPCS® code within the G-code series available on the March 2015 Fee Schedule.  An invoice is needed only if no price is listed on the Numerical Fee Schedule. Please refer to our website for the current Numerical Fee Schedule.

POA is defined as present at the time the order for inpatient admission occurs — conditions that develop during an outpatient encounter, including emergency department, observation, or outpatient surgery, are considered POA.  The POA indicator is assigned to principal and secondary diagnoses.
