Legal reminders for those who take UDTs (urine drug tests)…
For those of you that take UDT, urine drug tests, be aware that you must justify the frequency of the tests. Is your patient a low, medium, or high risk to be a drug abuser? Additionally, you must research what a particular insurance plan may require to approve whatever your UDT frequency is on a particular patient. For Medicare patients, look at your local directives. As always, document, document, document!
Until next week,
