Panels and Profiles

Panels and Profiles:

  • It is not against the law for a laboratory to allow the use of panels, profiles, and custom panels. However, all applicable CPT codes must be included.
  • The laboratory must ensure that the ordering doctor knows what tests are included in a panel or profile and what CPT codes will be billed to the Medicare program.
  • The laboratory notifies doctors about panels and profiles through a written notice and the requisition.
  • Employees should not permit the order of any panel or profile not authorized by the laboratory.
