Required Billing and Insurance Information

When possible, GML will directly bill a patient or his insurance company. GML would prefer to have a copy of both the front and back of the patient's insurance cards, along with complete patient demographic information. If a card is not available, the grid below illustrates what information is needed for correct billing. Along with that information, a medically necessary diagnosis for each test ordered must be provided on the test requisition. Providing this information up front will keep your patients from getting unnecessary bills and eliminate phone calls to your office. Please contact the Geisinger Medical Laboratories Billing Team with any billing questions.
