Tests with Standard Required Reflexes and Microbiology Protocols 2007

Tests with Standard Required Reflexes are defined as those tests that will automatically generate an order for additional testing when specific criteria are satisfied that indicate the medical necessity of performing the additional testing. The ranges for reflex testing are based upon medical criteria, to meet patient needs and are generally accepted medical practice. The reflexive testing will be billed either as the single charge or at an additional charge based on the service performed.

The Crozer-Keystone Laboratories comply with all federal and state regulations regarding the release of protected patient information. Laboratory results will only be released to the ordering physician or other physicians/healthcare providers who have a treatment relationship with the patient.

Laboratory staff will always ask for two forms of identification when results are to be released verbally. In addition, Laboratory staff members will ask you to confirm your treatment relationship with the patient if the requesting party is not the ordering physician.

Release of information outside of the above parameters may require a signed authorization from the patient.
