I can only speak to IHC billing. My staff (now 2 people) in our IHC Lab does
all the technical IHC billing manually. We average about 3,500 billable IHC
tests per month now. The volume used to be higher, but our healthcare system
sold most of our outreach business.

Subject: [Histonet] Billing Questions
I've been asked to post a question regarding Pathology technical billing.
With all of the changes that have been instituted over the past few years on
the technical billing side in Pathology and the fact that our computer system

is becoming a real problem since the supervisor and myself are the ones doing
this and we are also working on the bench along with other duties.
We are wondering who does that billing in your lab? Do you have
biller/coders ? Is it technical staff ? If it is technical staff, what level
? Has anyone been able to get that billing automated? Any info would be
