In March of this year you commented on billing/cpt coding of consults. I have a
"billing expert" saying that if patient is in hospital, hospital has to charge
patient, consultant (flow, em, etc.) MUST bill hospital. Does this change if
you have a private lab? Flow would have to originate from hospital but how
about slide consults at private-on work that originated at a hospital that has
no processing dept. Even after 30 yearw, I can say I can get mighty confused-
We (the pathology staff ) will soon become private and my "hat" will have to
change. I know that the discussion has been held in the past-especially with
archival HER2nu. Can we have a final decision and can a written reference be
sited so I can have a reference? Thanks for the reliving the past!
