Clinical Laboratory Billing
Clinical Laboratory Billing Services
Clinical laboratory billing is under intense scrutiny. The Office of Inspector General announced its intention to closely review independent clinical laboratory billing practices, and recommended that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services increase oversight of clinical laboratory services. With reimbursement tightening and costs for clinical labs increasing, the need for compliant, proficient clinical lab billing has never been greater.
PGM understands the ever-growing, ever-changing challenges facing today's clinical labs. Billers and coders must have knowledge of the extensive types of services a clinical lab may provide (e.g. biological, serological, hematological, cytological) and the rules for in- and out-of-network billing. They must maintain familiarity with the latest medical technology, CPT and ICD-10 codes, and understand what is required to ensure claims support medical necessity. But the margin for error is slim. Labs cannot afford to leave money on the table or waste time battling denials. That's why clinical labs throughout the country trust PGM with their medical billing.
