Medical necessity guidelines are provided by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS). MPLN encourages clients to utilize an Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN) on any laboratory procedure that Medicare may not deem as medically necessary. Without a signed ABN on file, MPLN reserves the right to bill the client for any tests deemed not medically necessary.
MPLN bills Medicare through Cahaba GBA in Tennessee and Palmetto GBA in Virginia. We accept Medicare's allowed rates as 100% of payment. If Medicare pays only a co-insurance amount of the allowed Medicare rate, or if the patient's deductible is not met, then the patient is responsible for the difference. MPLN accepts the Medicaid allowed rate as full payment. We are enrolled in the following state Medicaid programs: Alabama, Arkansas. Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington.
