Transfusion services are arranged into three groups: Blood Processing, Blood Products and Blood Typing.

Blood Processing services are derived from the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes in the 86890 to 86985 range, used to describe blood processes such as autologous blood or component collection, or treatment of blood such as thawing or splitting of components.

The Blood Product codes include 19 HCPCS codes and 1 CPT code, used to describe the various blood products such as Red Blood Cell or Cryoprecipitate units.

Finally, the Blood Typing codes include another 19 CPT codes, describing procedures related to blood screening for compatibility or Rh factors, etc.
