Keep Your Patients Compliant -- and Get Insurance Companies to Foot the Bill
In addiction and pain management settings, drug screening can keep patients on track. And even better, many tests can be billed to insurance.
If youʼre running a pain management or addiction treatment center, urine drug screens can help you ensure that your patients are sticking with their treatment plan. Tox tests (toxicology tests) are especially helpful for people who are undergoing chronic pain treatment or any other type of opioid or substance abuse treatment. They might be a sensitive part of treatment, but theyʼll help everyone see more success.
By administering regular UA (urine analysis) tests, you can keep tabs on drug abuse that patients have failed to report. Whatʼs more, drug screens can help you get to the bottom of issues such as early requests for prescription refills, irregular or lost prescriptions, and other suspicious activity.
Whatʼs more, having a CLIA Certificate means patientsʼ public or private insurance companies regularly reimburse for those point-of-care tests.
