RE: late charges

From:"Weems, Joyce"

I reregister the patient in the hospital system for the DOS the request is
received, and bill directly into the hospital system instead of on the case
in the lab computer system which interfaces with the hospital system. Does
this make sense? Anyway, new regulations state that the DOS for these
"stored" specimens is the date the request is made. j

Subject: late charges

can someone tell me how they handle say for instance an er,pr immuno that 
was not ordered at the time the tissue went through the lab, and now the 
dr's want it done.  Is is charged on the same case number and billed on that

or is it given a new number and billed on that.  say the case is a few 
months old.  here at our hosp. they tell us we can not bill an older case 
number?  thanks for the info,
