[Histonet] Charging for patient slide send out

From:"Richard Cartun"

I know we have discussed this before, but how many of you in clinical pathology labs are doing direct patient billing (cash or credit card) for sending out patient slides for second opinions?  We are getting so many requests now we cannot keep up, and we certainly can't afford to do this for free.  At a minimum, I think the patient should pay the mailing charge.  Thank you.
