PathLab Coding Solutions will provide timely responses to pathology CPT coding inquires as well as access to automated and online coding resources. 
 
“PSA is pleased to extend our coding compliance expertise and resources to pathologists nationwide,” said Laura Chaney, PSA Vice President of Finance and Operations. “Subscribers to PSA’s PathLab Coding Solutions will have the opportunity to consult with PSA’s certified professional coders, access CPT Coding resources, and receive timely responses to their coding questions.”
 
The new website offers the following 3 convenient ways to resolve coding concerns and questions: 
  • Coding AssistantObtain immediate answers from this quick, easy-to-navigate, self-service knowledge-based application for common pathology CPT coding questions that can be used every day, 24-hours a day/ 7days a week.
  • Coding Resource Center – Access educational coding articles, alerts, and frequently asked questions designed to enhance your CPT coding skills on new codes, common coding errors, and complex coding scenarios.
  • Coding Consultant – Receive written responses from experienced Certified Professional Coders, supported by authoritative documentation, within 1-2 business days for each pathology CPT coding case inquiry submitted for review. 
In early August 2008, PSA entered into an agreement with the College of American Pathologists (CAP) to offer PSA’s PathLab Coding Solutions to CAP members at a discounted rate. CAP selected PSA as a preferred provider for prompt, written, standards-based guidance on CPT coding questions received from CAP members. “The College selected PSA to supply this new service to our members,” said Robert L. Breckenridge, MD, FCAP, Chair, CAP Council on Membership and Professional Development.  “After our review, we felt PSA had demonstrated the ability to provide timely quality responses that include citations from authoritative documentation to a broad range of pathology CPT coding inquiries.”
