Most pathologists that bill separately have a contract with the hospital to provide services. Therefore, in my opinion, if the pathologist can't provide a diagnosis and the case is sent out, the pathologist is responsible for the bill. However, if the case is sent out at the request of the patient or clinician (after the pathologist has established a diagnosis) then the patient (or her/his insurance) or the clinician is responsible for the bill. The hospital should not have to pay for these requests.

If your Pathologists bill for the professional component privately, and your hospital bills for the technical component, who pay for expert
consultations of slides sent out?
