So many labs have LCDs or NCDs making specific diagnoses to support medical neccessity a must. However, it does matter who you are billing for and on what type form. For instances, if you are the physician's office billing for the lab test, you have to link the diagnosis to the lab procedure. This is also true for an outpatient lab. If the physician does not link the diagnosis to each procedure, it would be reasonable for the lab to assign all of the codes listed to the procedure, however most billing systems would have a claims scrubber that would flag all diagnosis codes that would not support that procedure when billed with those codes.
