Fees and Billing Information

Fee:
The biopsy fee, which includes technical and professional components, depends on the complexity of the case and diagnostic procedures. Most of the time routine cases cost $145, including shipping and handling. If you have questions about the biopsy fee, please call us at 713-486-4405 or contact via email: utoralpathology@uth.tmc.edu.

Billing and Insurance Information:
We bill either the patient or the doctor, as instructed by referring provider. Pathologic diagnostic services are generally considered "medical” in nature and are typically billed to the patient’s medical insurance carrier. If the patient’s dental insurance does cover a biopsy charge, we will bill to the dental carrier. Our biopsy service is a Medicare-participating provider but is considered out of network for all other commercial medical insurance carriers. However, we do bill all medical insurance carriers. We do not accept Medicaid coverage or DMO insurance plans.
