BILLING SERVICES UPDATE

On behalf of our clients, Mayo Medical Laboratories will seek insurance authorization for eligible tests and file an insurance claim upon final result.

Prior authorization services are available for a select number of tests. On completion of prior authorization services, Mayo Medical Laboratories will bill the insurance carrier and accept the amount of coverage assigned.

In some cases, your patient may be responsible for paying charges for services deemed not medically necessary by the insurance carrier.


GENETIC TESTING FORUM SERIES

Mayo Medical Laboratories Genetic Testing Forums are a series of interactive conference calls designed to provide you an opportunity to discuss and overcome the challenges you face in outreach development.

The programs are conducted through Level 3 Communications technology and will be tailored based on pre-submitted participant questions, which may be submitted with registration, or any time prior to the date of the program.
