|Copy of patient's insurance card, front and back|

|Billing Consent form|
|Authorization letter (if required by the insurance plan), including the authorization number and CPT codes authorized. OR|
|If no authorization is necessary, note the name and extension of the plan employee who provided this information.|
Remember: patients are responsible for any applicable deductable, co-pay, or co-insurance.
A note about CPT codes:
As many of our tests for rare diseases are using the unlisted code (81479), we anticipate an increase in denials of coverage. Verification of coverage of the test codes is required, and patients should be informed of the possibility of insurance denials.
