Can my patient use health insurance to pay for the BrainSpan Assessment?
**Option 1.** Billing CPT codes: 3 fatty acid metrics (EPA/DHA, AA, AA/EPA ratio, Palmitic Acid) and 4 Cognitive Function metrics are measured:
- **82726** - very long chain fatty acids
- **82542** - additional fatty acids (palmitic)
**Option 2.** Offer BrainSpan as a cash-only item.
- **Comparable pricing:** $199-$244.00
- **96103** - For computer testing of 4 metrics
**Recommendation:** utilize insurance billing as allowed by contract. For the uninsured patient(s) make the test available as a cash item. Please note. CPT codes provided are based on AMA guidelines and are for informational purposes only. CPT coding is the sole responsibility of the billing party.
