MEDICARE: We are a Medicare participating provider. Therefore, we must bill Medicare directly for any services performed directly by our laboratory. Diagnosis codes justifying medical necessity are required by Medicare for reimbursement of many laboratory tests. Medicare patients should sign an Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN) form when any laboratory work is ordered for screening purposes, or when a diagnosis code that does not justify medical necessity is being used. Check the Medicare National Coverage Determinations manual. If the code is not covered, have the patient sign the ABN.


MEDICAID: We are providers of Kansas and Nebraska Medicaid; therefore, we must bill Medicaid directly for any services performed by our laboratory.

BLUE CROSS/BLUE SHIELD: We are providers of BC/BS. Please provide a copy of the front and back of the insurance card.

COMMERCIAL INSURANCE: We file all commercial insurances, providing we have the appropriate information. However, if we are a non-participant in the plan; we do not accept assignment as payment in full. Send a copy of the front and back of the insurance card with complete address information.
