I am going to lean towards having the dr or nurse let you know which diagnosis goes with which lab. It would make me nervous to just assume the diagnosis. I know, like you said, some are obvious like the A1C. I am surprised there are no diagnosis codes on the lab order in EMR. Is the lab order sent with the blood to the lab? Wouldn't it need to have the dx with it so that the lab could bill it? Maybe your office and EMR is set up differently than mine is.
