Lab Descriptions

Mar 13, 2011

I'm trying to find out what, in plain English, my lab descriptions are, so I know what costs what. Nobody seems to want to help me out, doctor says to call lab, lab says to call doctor, and my insurance is no help either!!! My lab descriptions are as follows: Panel 083824 HCV Ab w/Rflx to RIBA RPR HBsAg Screen Venipuncture

Thanks so much!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Unfortunately I won't be of any help either. It's really a function of the insurance coverage and justification or indication for the testing.
