RE: late charges

From:Bonnie P Whitaker

Where I work, if a specimen is within the current(billable)timeframe (I
think that is 3 months) the same accession number is used.  If it is beyond
that timeframe, then it is given a new accession number, and the original
surgical number is cited in the report.

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,
