Urine drug screening is a practical way to reduce the chances of developing substance abuse. Point-of-care urine drug test provides a physician with rapid results that are especially useful in an emergency situation. Drug test cup is a diagnostic test for the rapid detection of drugs in human urine. With quick results, doctors can start a treatment plan immediately instead of waiting for days for the lab report. Also, throughout the substance abuse treatment, these tests help to ensure that the treatment is effective and the patient is no longer taking drugs.
The Quikscreen Drug Test cup is one such rapid test kit that helps doctors detect the presence of illegal drugs without having to use expensive lab equipment. Testing urine specimens at collection site is now possible with this immunoassay.
Completely made in USA, these FDA-cleared and CLIA-waived cups can provide drug test results for Marijuana (THC), Opiates (OPI), Amphetamines (AMP), Methamphetamines (METH), Cocaine (COC), Phencyclidine (PCP), Benzodiazepine (BZO), Barbiturates (BAR), Methadone (MAD) and other drugs.
This is an easy, fast, qualitative, visually read competitive binding immunoassay method for screening without the need of instrumentation. It employs a unique mixture of antibodies to selectively identify the drugs of abuse and their metabolites in test samples with a high degree of sensitivity.

QuikScreen drug test cup consists of a collection cup and a test card with various panels for testing for different substances. When the card is inserted in the urine sample, it indicates the presence or absence of drugs within five minutes. These cups can be customized to meet unique specifications. The QuikScreen device also costs less than half the price of laboratory testing.
Physicians can bill and code for urine drug screen to Medicare as well as other insurance payers. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) currently does not recognize AMA CPT® drug testing codes. Instead, Medicare payers require that you submit claims for drug testing with dedicated HCPCS “G” codes. G-codes”G0431, G0434” and HCPCS codes G6030 through G6058 are no longer in use now. Medical codes that are used now include:
- G0477 Drug tests(s), presumptive, any number of drug classes; any number of devices or procedures, (e.g. immunoassay) capable of being read by direct optical observation only (e.g., dipsticks, cups, cards, cartridges), includes sample validation when performed, per date of service.
- G0478 Drug tests(s), presumptive, any number of drug classes; any number of devices or procedures, (e.g. immunoassay) read by instrument-assisted direct optical observation (e.g., dipsticks, cups, cards, cartridges), includes sample validation when performed, per date of service.
With this point-of-care testing kit, even employers can check to see whether an employee’s urine exceeds the standards established by the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) limits for five different drugs – amphetamines, marijuana, cocaine, opiates and methamphetamines.
