August 1, 2013
The Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Laboratory Services Section (LSS) is in the process of revising rules concerning laboratory testing and fees for some laboratory services. These revisions will take effect September 1, 2013 and will include the discontinuation of some low volume tests, addition of new tests, renaming of some tests to more accurately reflect the actual procedure, and adjustment of some test pricing, as applicable.
Detailed information about all changes to laboratory testing and associated fees can be found at http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/lab/newRules.html, or by calling 800-963-7111 ext. 6030.
Thank you for your continued partnership and support.
