Thread: general health panel

    Question general health panel

    AAPC: Back to School
    We recently had a change in our lab which allows us to bill all of the components of a general health panel from our office. I did not realize at that time that Medicare does not cover a general health panel. I have 25 denials. Can I rebill these to Medicare unbundled? I have supporting diagnoses. Will any special information need submitted with the claim?

    Thanks for your time and help.

    We bill the componets of the general health panel and get paid. Medicare will not take the general health panel, so we unbundle. From what I understand this is how Medicare wants it.

    We unbundle per Medicare.
