    Patient Billing Policy & Agreement to Pay for Services

    Patient Notice of Billing Policy. As a result of evaluation by your dentist or physician a specimen is being sent to us for an oral pathologist’s diagnosis.

    Our fee for the diagnosis of your biopsy is separate from your dentist’s or physician’s fee for the biopsy procedure. The diagnosis of your biopsy is a medical (not dental) procedure. If your medical insurance information is included with your biopsy, we will submit a claim for you.

    If there is a balance due on your account, you will receive a statement. Please check with your insurance carrier. They may require a referral letter, PPO form, or prior authorization code from your primary physician.

    For questions concerning the bill and/or payment arrangements for your biopsy, please contact:
