[Histonet] Pathology Consults and Path Contracts

From:"Weems, Joyce"

Hello Everyone, We are going in circles trying to obtain referral numbers for path cases being sent for consultation. We are told that for any HMO we need a referral number from the primary care physician. We don't usually know who the primary is and have to make several calls to make people understand what we are asking for. How are you handling this? Also many consultants have stopped billing patient insurance and are only billing the facility. If your pathologists are contracted by the hospital, does their private billing service handle this issue or is it a part of their contract for the hospital to handle it?  Thanks for your help,Joyce Joyce WeemsPathology ManagerSaint Joseph's Hospital 5665 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd NEAtlanta, GA 30342404-851-7376 - Phone404-851-7831 - Fax Confidentiality Notice ** The information contained in this message may be privileged and is confidential information intended for the use of the addressee listed above.
