 I would also like to know how others are handling this. We are not
billing for the tests. We are using the same accession number and
issuing an addendum report. We have had clinicians order the Her/2neu
on blocks as far back as 1987. Are you assigning a new accession number
when you generate a new billing number and use the new date of service?
I would like to know exactly how you are able to bill for the testing
and how you are reporting the results. We would love to be able to bill
for these.

I use the date that the test was ordered as the date of service and
generate a new billing number as of that date.  This is simply another
order from a clinician, but instead of getting new material, it is done
on the archived material.

The key, I believe, is the order from the clinician.

What do the rest of you do?
