Frequently Asked Questions


What are the insurance codes correlated with the HLA/DNA tests for celiac disease?

A genetic test shows if you have the gene associated with the disease but doesn’t diagnose that you have it. Genetics tests are often used to understand whether there are risk factors for relatives of someone with celiac disease, or to indicate celiac disease as a likely cause if other methods of screening have been compromised due to a self-prescribed gluten-free diet. If you want to inquire with your insurance company about whether they will cover a genetic test, please use the procedure and diagnostic codes below: HLA/DNA Test for celiac disease: CPT Code: 86817 ICD9 Code: v18.59 or 579.0 July, 2015
