FRIDAY COMPLIANCE BRIEFING: 6/28/2002
The next two Friday Compliance Briefings will discuss the direct billing rules of Medicare. This Friday we will explore these regulatory requirements as they apply to physician office laboratories (POLs) and reference laboratories. The second part of this analysis will discuss how the direct billing rules apply to radiology and pathology procedures as well as tests and services performed for hospital outpatients.
Due to the Fouth of July Holiday you will not receive a Friday Compliance Briefing next week (July 5, 2002). We will conclude our analysis of direct billing regulations on July 12, 2002.
