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.

WES Reanalysis
WES Reanalysis
Test Information: Reanalysis of the Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) data previously performed at Baylor Genetics may be indicated if the previous WES analysis did not yield a causative molecular diagnosis relevant to patient's clinical phenotype. Most commonly, it is applicable to cases in which there is new phenotype information, and/or significant amount of time (>1 year) has passed since the last analysis.

Previously generated sequencing data will be re-evaluated based on the current clinical phenotype and the current analysis pipeline. A reanalysis report will be issued.
Test Details
Test Code: 1900
Special Notes: The exome refers to the portion of the human genome that contains functionally important sequences of DNA that direct the body to make proteins essential for the body to function properly. These regions of DNA are referred to as exons. There are approximately 180,000 exons in the human genome which represents about 3% of the genome. These 180,000 exons are arranged in about 22,000 genes. It is known that most of the errors that occur in DNA sequences that then lead to genetic disorders are located in the exons. Therefore, sequencing of the exome is thought to be an efficient method of analyzing a patient's DNA to discover the genetic cause of diseases or disabilities.
