Rate Update for Laboratory and Pathology Services
Effective retroactively for dates of service on or after January 1, 2013, the reimbursement rates for certain laboratory and pathology services that were higher than 80 percent of the 2013 Medicare rate will change. Claims processed for dates of service on or after January 1, 2013, will be subject to the updated rates. An Erroneous Payment Corrections will be initiated to adjust those claims previously processed under the higher rate. However, any claims reprocessed after this rate update will be subject to the most current rate.
