This presentation will provide an overview of pathology in the hospital setting from operational, reimbursement, and terminology perspectives.

Pathology and related compensation arrangements differ from other healthcare specialties resulting in challenges even for healthcare-focused attorneys. Furthermore, new pathology arrangement structures are beginning to form in the marketplace, which also must be considered from a legal and value-based standpoint.

Faculty will address certain pathology-specific topics including (i) the need to pay for Part A type services and how such services should be valued when compensated; (ii) payment for the technical component of anatomic pathology; and (iii) risk-based/incentive-based compensation arrangements.
