    Default automated v nonautomated

    AAPC: Back to School
    Let's say I am having a blood test or any kind of blood test and if the lab doesn't say automated would it be automatically manual tests?

    I could be completely wrong about this, but it only looks like blood cells get counted either manually or automated, and all of those codes specify which method was used. But if I am wrong about that, then I'd say to assume it was automated, because that's easier to perfor,. Hope that helps!
