The American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes listed, are provided for informational purposes only. The codes reflect our interpretation of CPT/HCPCS coding requirements based upon AMA guidelines published annually. CPT/HCPCS codes are provided only as guidance to assist clients with billing. Baylor Genetics strongly recommends that clients confirm CPT/HCPCS codes with their Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) or other payer being billed, as requirements may differ. CPT coding is the sole responsibility of the billing party. Baylor Genetics assumes no responsibility for billing errors due to reliance on the CPT codes listed. Please direct any questions regarding CPT coding to the payer being billed.


BluePrint Panel
Test Information: The BluePrint panel is a genetic test that enables physicians to order a panel of customized genes based on patient clinical symptoms. Up to 100 genes can be included in the panel. The genes of interest can be automatically generated by entering the clinical phenotype of the patient, or by manually entering a list of genes.
Due to the nature of the methodology used for this test complete sequencing coverage of the genes selected to be analyzed may not be available. The coverage tool built into the test order provides an estimate of the coverage expected for each gene using this methodology; however, exact coverage may vary for each individual sample.
