Beginning with dates of service on or after September 1, 2019, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s policy language will be updated to only allow the lower level definitive code drug testing of one to seven drug class(es) (G0480) on the same day as presumptive services. Definitive codes for more than eight drug class(es) will be denied when billed on the same day with presumptive services.  Additionally, the definitive drug testing related coding section was expanded for clarification.
