Subject: [Histonet] Patient slide send-out
Our Anatomic Pathology Office is overwhelmed with requests from patients
asking for their pathology slides to be sent to another medical
institution (for second opinion, additional surgery or therapy, etc.).
Is it legal to charge patients for this service? We don't have the
personnel to handle these requests in a timely fashion and we can no
longer afford to "eat" the shipping costs. Thank you.
