Specimen Shipping

All shipping charges are paid by Exceltox when you use the pre-addressed labels provided with the collection supplies. Your account manager will set up your account with FedEx or UPS, schedule your routine pick-ups, and provide you with custom lab packs and pre-printed shipping labels.

Depending on the location of your facility we may retrieve the specimens with one of our in-house couriers.

While awaiting pick-up, maintain specimens at room temperature or on cold packs unless otherwise noted. Customers are responsible for the security of specimens prior to pick-up unless one of our collectors is on site.

Billing Information

Billing Experts

Exceltox only uses experienced billing experts who work diligently to ensure all codes are accurately used to bill Medicare or other publicly funded health care programs. We only bill for tests that have been ordered and for which test results have been presented to the ordering physician.

Exceltox - Insurance Providers

Insurance Providers

Most insurance providers require that we bill patients for any deductible, co-insurance and co-payment amounts. The charges are reflected on the explanation of benefits that you receive in the mail from the insurer. Exceltox does not determine the amount required for the patient responsibility, the insurer determines this amount. If Exceltox is not contracted with a particular insurance plan we typically bill the patient the amount designated by their individual plan. The allowable charge is determined by the insurer. If the insurer pays the full allowable amount the patient will not be billed by Exceltox.

Workers Compensation- All services performed on Workers Compensation patients will be billed directly to the Workers Compensation plans. Patient responsibility does not usually apply.

Checks Received

Patients that receive checks from their insurance provider for services rendered by Exceltox must immediately send to our address. Endorse the back of the check and write “Pay to Exceltox”. All payments that are not forwarded to Exceltox may be sent to collections, we do not hold the patient responsible for any amount above the payment that was received.
