for the express shipping when another medical institution requests a patient's pathology slides and/or unstains or paraffin block for additional testing? In my opinion, the requesting institution should provide a FedEx, UPS or other account number for this. After all, they will be billing the patient's insurance for the consult and/or special testing that is to be performed. This is a major cost to our Department that, as you know, cannot be billed to insurance. I have instructed our staff to ask for an account number; many facilities supply one, others do not. What do you do at your facility? Thank you.
