Molecular Diagnostics Procedures

Molecular diagnostics procedures are coded by procedure rather than analyte using the following codes:
  • 83890 MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS: molecular isolation or extraction
  • 83892 MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS: enzyme digestion
  • 83894 MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS: separation
  • 83896 MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS: nucleic acid probe, each
  • 83898 MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS: amplification, e.g., PCR, each
  • 83902 MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS: reverse transcription
  • 83912 MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS: interpretation and report
New antigen-specific codes are now used to describe infectious agent antigen detection and quantification using molecular diagnostic procedures.
