We perform the lab tests your physician depends on
We play a critical role in your care by providing pathology tests and the laboratory examination of tissue, blood and urine samples from your physician. Our lab reports are provided directly to your doctor and our pathologists are available to consult with them as needed. We cannot release your report to you, only to your clinician. This is to protect your privacy.

Who is Annapath Inc?
Annapath is the independent laboratory that partners with a variety of specialists located in the Maryland and Virginia area including: Dermatologists, Gastroenterologists, Gynecologists, Plastic Surgeons and Urologists.
What are the charges on the bill I received?
Depending on the specialist you recently saw, you may be billed for any of the following services: Technical Component or Global Pathology work performed on the biopsy received, a urine culture or blood work.
Where are you located?
We are located in both Bowie, Maryland and Annandale, Virginia but you may not have physically been to our lab. Our drivers pick up the specimens directly from the facility or doctors office where you had your procedure.
What visit am I getting billed for?
The Date of Service on the statement is the date you saw the referring doctor, who requested lab work that was performed by Annapath.
I have more than one policy but I only see one insurance on my statement. Did you bill all my policies?
Our statement will print out your primary insurance name only but your statement is generated only after all insurances have processed our claim. You may always reach out to us to confirm and/or to provide any other policy information that you may not have provided to your referring provider.
When going into your doctor's appointment please make sure:
Your insurance is active for the date of service, your information is up to date (personal information, coordination of benefits, etc.) and you provide all current insurance policies that you have and the policy holder information.
My insurance did not pay my claim. What should I do?
Review the Explanation of Benefits (EOB) for the details that can help you understand the reason for the denial. Your insurance company’s member services should be able to answer any questions regarding claim denials.
How long will it take my insurance company to process a claim?
Every insurance has their own claims processing time frame but most insurances finalize their claims within four to six weeks. Once your insurance processes our claim, you will receive an explanation of benefits from them informing you of the amount it will pay for your lab services. This EOB is not your invoice but it will indicate your coverage and the out-of-pocket amount due. In addition, your insurance will also notify Annapath of the balance you owe and we will mail you a statement.
