Laboratory Services in Outpatient Hospital Setting
If you are an outpatient hospital providing lab services and are seeing these services being denied as included in the facility fee, you may need to re-bill using bill type 141 or 147 in field 4 of the UB04 form. Please see the Department of Labor & Industry’s “Guidance/Clarification” for the circumstances in which the lab services may be billed separately at http://assets.dli.mt.gov/erd/mrdocs/dli-erd-mr080.pdf.
For CPT lab codes 81200 through 81383, 81400 through 81408 and 81479 bill type 13X is still correct as these codes are not bundled.
Laboratory results must be submitted when billing for laboratory services and services must be related to the workers’ compensation .
