Avoid Overpayment Recoveries Related to Laboratory/Pathology Services

Avoid overpayment recoveries related to Laboratory/Pathology services for lack of physician documentation.

Laboratories, remember, your reimbursement is contingent upon appropriate documentation by the referring physician - it is your responsibility to routinely monitor for compliance with the guidelines by requesting and auditing the documentation from your referral sources to establish medical necessity of the tests performed.
