Laboratory of Diagnostic Molecular Pathology
CPT Codes are provided as a convenience to our clients as guidance to assist you in billing. Since CPT codes are subject to change at any time, it is the client's responsibility to verify their accuracy for the test performed. Clients are encouraged to consult the CPT Coding Manual published by the American Medical Association and to address questions regarding the use of any particular code to their local Medicare carrier.
Credit and Collection
Advance Beneficiary Notification (ABN) Form
The ordering physician is responsible for ensuring that lab procedures requested are medically necessary by federal guidelines in order to bill Medicare. The Medicare program will allow the laboratory to bill the patient for non-covered services only if an ABN form is completed and signed by the patient. Under these circumstances, an ABN form must be submitted with the specimen.
