Labcorp continues to rely on the ordering physician to provide diagnostic information for the individual patient. In accordance with HIPAA standards, Labcorp requires a valid diagnosis at the highest level of specificity in order to bill third-party payers, including Medicare and Medicaid. Missing diagnoses, diagnosis codes lacking the highest level of specificity, and nonspecific narratives all require follow-up with the ordering physician or his/her authorized designee for clarification. Providing a formatted ICD-10-CM code at the time of order will minimize letters and/or calls.
