RE: late charges

From:"Weems, Joyce"

At a time when we billed our reference tests, I gave the case an "R" prefix
number, which showed up as a separate case, but with the same patient's
record. Might something like this work for you? j

The hospital would like us to re-accession these types of cases so we can
bill for them but we don't do that because people won't know to look for a
different case number for the same tissue on a particular patient.  So...we
use the original case number and eat the cost of the test.

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,
