CPT Code for Preterm Birth Blood Test

Sera Prognostics

Sera Prognostics announces that the AMA has assigned a new, dedicated Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Proprietary Laboratory Analysis (PLA) code to facilitate billing and payment for Sera’s PreTRM Test, a proteomic blood test for measuring a patient’s risk of spontaneous preterm birth in order to enable timely intervention. The establishment of the new code, 0247U, is a result of the AMA’s PLA program, which enables labs with distinct, single-source Laboratory Developed Tests (LDT) to apply for a dedicated code that can be utilized to bill payors and receive reimbursement. The PreTRM test provides an early and individual risk prediction for spontaneous preterm birth in asymptomatic, singleton pregnancies.
