We now request a FedEx or UPS account number for all outside requests for pathology materials from our Department.  It is the responsibility of the requesting hospital/laboratory/company to provide this since they will be providing a consultation, performing IHC/molecular testing, or conducting research on our patient's pathology material.

Fellow techs, 


I am wondering  what you do with charges for slides that are requested to be sent to another facility. Is there a CPT code that can be used for billing for the shipment, do you charge the patient or physician who requests the slides to be sent out or do you pay for the shipping yourself ?
