We use Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) to screen for the presence of a drug or metabolite. When positive on the EIA screen, the sample is sent to conﬁrmation for more speciﬁc analytical methods, if ordered by the physician. This qualitative testing can be performed at the lab or in a CLIA-Waived physician’s ofﬁce with a Point-of-Care Test device.
Many physicians enjoy the beneﬁts of a Point-of-Care Test, which allows for the initial screening by immunoassay to take place in the ofﬁce at the time of the patient’s visit. Further testing at the laboratory is recommended for conﬁrmation of initial results.
Premier Medical is committed to our role in educating physicians on the requirement by the Ofﬁce of the Inspector General/Health and Human Services that all testing ordered must be deemed medically necessary. As part of our compliance plan , we offer full disclosure of the CPT codes we will bill with, along with the corresponding Medicare Fees so that providers may consider those facts as they make their selections.
