CPT codes bundling by insurers.

80050 General Health Panel should be deleted from CPT, since most insurers are now bundling these three seperate CPT codes used for three different diagnoses or conditions; and reducing payment by 65% or more. We perform each test for a particular condition or for monitoring and following one or more acute or chronic diseases. By bundling them together without a specific diagnosis will cause this code to be overused/misused and create a false impression of data.
