Re: Autopsy

Autopsies in our institution are performed for physician education and therefore have no charge attached.  Autopsies by family request are referred outside this institution to a 'fee for service' provider.   Last I heard, Medicare still does not reimburse for autopsies, although there has been a lot of bantering about it.
