We code for 17 GI Facilities. I've been searching everywhere for documentation stating if I need to request a path for biopsies based on facility based coding guidelines. We have our higher up's wanting us to prove (with documentation) why we need to request paths from the physicians. Coders here say yes we need them, Mgmt says no we don't. That the Physician's office would need the paths but the facility doesn't. Can anyone help? PLEASE!!!
