Policies

Policies regarding Billing (Client and Third Party Invoicing), CPT coding, Test Cancellations, Critical and Stat Result Reporting, HIPAA, Reflex Testing and Reportable Results are presented here as a quick reference for you.

The University of Michigan Health System has established critical values for certain tests. MLabs will notify our clients by telephone of results that are outside these limits. A listing of these tests is provided for your reference. 

MLabs is fully committed to compliance with all current Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements regarding privacy, security and electronic transaction codes. As part of the University of Michigan Health System, MLabs has the benefit of a comprehensive HIPAA compliance program, including ready access to expert consultation in order to meet the needs of the University as well as our Clients. 

Some tests require confirmation by another method or may have other tests reflexively performed in order to determine a final result. If a test is reflexed for further testing, additional CPT codes and charges for the added tests will be billed to the client or third party payer. Refer to the Reflex Testing list for tests that may include reflexive testing.
