She means that CMS has steadily been reducing the reimbursement levels for path services. Its' not that she isn't getting compensated for what she bills, she just gets less and less.I am a lab technologist, and I am always glad to see stuff related to lab or pathology. One thing about the article I would have liked to know wht she meant exactly about "reinbursment". So is she saying pathologists arent being compensated for the work they put out? I am not sure how to take that because every test/case is billed, so maybe she meant something else. I am always glad to see a happy face in patho! I did some shadowing with a pathologist. I liked the work he did. Clinical work can be mundane sometimes but I dont like the thought of working with a bunch of hazardous chemicals on the gross path side.
