Dear Netters,
We are in the process of returning to global billing, where the Pathology
group bills the patients for the technical and professional fees and pays
the hospital for the technical services.  Previously, the Pathologist paid
the hospital "per block"  and per frozen section block, but they did not pay
for any special stains, decal charges or multiple slides for levels on
biopsy specimens, etc.  We would like to be fair, without cutting our own
throats!  Can anyone that does global billing share the price and billing
structure with me?  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
