I was wondering if everyone is waiting on path reports to bill office procedures? (ex. colpo, endo biopsy)

Hi,
We code the reason we are doing the colp or endo biopsy which is usually from an abnormal pap or use other signs/symptoms. Rationale: code what you know at the end of the encounter. jane

We actually wait until the record is complete before we code, even though we can't code the path results (for outpatients) without documentation from the provider on that account.

We send off the biopsy with the reason but wait til the path is back to put the diagnosis of the results on the claims
