Test Consolidation Memorandum

In a continuing effort to provide you with the most straightforward and efficient test ordering process, we are consolidating many of our test codes for cancer genetic testing. Effective November 20, 2014, one test code will encompass all appropriate specimen types for each test.

The following tests can be ordered regardless of whether the specimen type is FFPE or fresh tissue (e.g., solid tumor, blood, bone marrow, etc.). Please refer to our website to determine which specific specimen types are appropriate for each test.

  • 9003 BRAF V600 Real Time PCR Mutation Analysis
  • 9030 EGFR Mutation Analysis
  • 9035 PIK3CA Mutation Analysis
  • 9055 TP53 Mutation Analysis
  • 9086 CEBPA Mutation Analysis
  • 9110 KIT Exon 9 & 11 Mutation Analysis
  • 9121 KIT Exon 8,9,11,13,17 Mutation Analysis
  • 9126 KRAS Real Time PCR Mutation Analysis
  • 9200 T-Cell Receptor-Beta (TRB) Gene Rearrangement
  • 9202 Comprehensive B-Cell Clonality Analysis
  • 9205 Immunoglobulin Heavy Chain (IGH) Gene Rearrangement
  • 9210 Immunoglobulin Kappa (IGK) Light Chain Gene Rearrangement
  • 9215 T-Cell Receptor Gamma (TRG) Gene Rearrangement
  • 9217 Comprehensive T-Cell Clonality Analysis

For institutional accounts, in cases where the specimen types were priced differently, we will honor the lower of the two prices. This change will not affect the CPT codes for insurance billing.

The test codes below will be discontinued effective November 20, 2014.

  • 9002 BRAF V600 Real Time PCR Mutation Analysis
  • 9031 EGFR Mutation Sequence Analysis – Fresh Tissue
  • 9036 PIK3CA Mutation Sequence Analysis – Fresh Tissue
  • 9056 TP53 Mutation Analysis – Fresh Tissue
  • 9087 CEBPA Mutation Sequence Analysis-FFPE
  • 9111 KIT Exon 9 & 11 Mutation Analysis – Fresh Tissue
  • 9122 KIT Exon 8,9,11,13,17 Sequence Analysis – FFPE
  • 9125 KRAS Real Time PCR Mutation Analysis – Tumor
  • 9220 Immunoglobulin Heavy Chain Gene (IGH) Rearrangement – FFPE
  • 9225 T-Cell Receptor-Beta (TRB) Gene Rearrangement – FFPE
  • 9230 Ig Kappa (IGK) Light Chain Gene Rearrangement – FFPE
  • 9235 T-Cell Receptor Gamma (TRG) Gene Rearrangement – FFPE
  • 9240 Comprehensive B-Cell Clonality Analysis – FFPE
  • 9245 Comprehensive T-Cell Clonality Analysis – FFPE
