Hospital bills technical and pathologist bills technical.

That's an interesting alternative though.  I'm just an IT Analyst which means I know way more about billing than I want to but nowhere near enough to be a revenue cycle manager or even biller.  I am interested in hearing from anyone that does both and then pays the hospital.  It seems like that would be a significant benefit to everyone:  The insurer/patient would only get one bill -- at least for those services;  any denials would be processed together reducing work for hospital billing; and the practice plan could charge the hospital a nickel for doing it.

Happy Friday
This is a question to those who work at a hospital that have contracted 
pathologists. Does your hospital bill the technical component and the 
pathologist bill the profession component or does the pathologist bill 
everything and pay the hospital for technical component?
