Pathology is a small yet invincible segment of healthcare that requires effective and timely billing and coding. Since pathology provides diagnostic information to other healthcare departments, pathology services may be required every time a new patient walks in, or an old patient requires a follow-up.
As a result, a pathology billing service teams may be extremely swamped with work, handling hundreds of bills a day.
Pathology is often referred to as the precursor of any medical procedure. It broadly involves blood tests, drug tests, hematology, urinalysis, and other invasive and non-invasive diagnostic tests.
Though a small segment of healthcare services, since there could be hundreds of procedures and tests performed, pathology and laboratory services include a wide range of codes and modifiers that your team needs to be familiar with.
There are usually two kinds of tests pathology departments handle – qualitative and quantitative. Billers will need to know what each test exactly entails to bill the payers right. Usually Pathology billing service providers will need to bill based on the number of tests performed and not based on the results offered. By combining tests, you could be losing precious money that the lab is eligible for.
