MicroMD PM - Associating Lab Companies with Insurance Plans
With all of the new costs, rules, and restrictions on insurance plans it is important to help patients cut costs to keep their business. One way to do this is to make sure that you are using the in-network lab company associated with your patient's insurance plan to prevent the patient from receiving an unexpected and non-covered lab bill. MicroMD allows you to follow your patient's plan by setting up an associated Lab Company at the Plan level. Here is how to set this up:
1. Go into MicroMD PM
2. Go to Maint drop down menu and choose Plan to open the Plan Detail tab
3. In the Plan Detail tab, check mark 'Lab' in the lower right corner and specify the lab company by typing the lab name into the Lab Name text box. This information can then be set to print on the patient encounter form to alert your Provider's & Lab Tech's as to which Lab specimen's should be sent to.
