In-Office Pathology, LLC (IOP)
"You see patients and do procedures. We take care of pathology for you"
IOP is an expert provider of compliant in-office labs for anatomic pathology in urology, gastroenterology, dermatology and multi-specialty practices. We help such practices with the business of in-office pathology.
Success in adding in-office pathology ancillary services comes from having the right business professionals on your side. With all the issues involved -- credentialing, technical staffing, pathologist compensation, reimbursement, equipment selection, regulatory compliance and inspections, computer software, operational and legal issues -- experienced professional pathology business guidance is the difference between a quality in-office pathology laboratory and a vulnerable one.
Let IOP’s vast business experience with the biggest names in laboratory medicine work for you. We are the true experts in regulatory, laboratory operations, technology transfer, credentialing, reimbursement and legal issues for in-office pathology. Why trust this important ancillary service addition to anyone but professionals?
We provide a single fee schedule for our services. We have arranged for 100% financing at competitive rates like your local bank but without the 8 week delay in getting the funding. Plus provide ongoing management services to keep you compliant. Since the government regulations change each year we are collaborators with you for the long term in this new business venture. If you already are in a TCPC arrangement we have a streamlined program to meet your needs as well.
We do not have "day jobs" working for reference labs or hospitals. We do not own a laboratory equipment company trying to unload some equipment (used or new). We do not own a dermatology billing company. We do this full time as our core business. We created this business in 2004. We do it better than anyone else.

IOP, LLC Announces New Exclusive Relationship with Matthews Ward Healthcare Consultant for Credentialing and Managed Care Contracting Assistance to all In-Office Pathology Laboratory Installations
For additional information contact: May 16, 2013

In-Office Pathology, LLC
Lake Forest, IL – In-Office Pathology, LLC (IOP) announced today that it has reached an exclusive agreement for credentialing and managed care contracting consulting services for IOP in-office pathology laboratories with Matthews (Matt) Ward of Richmond, VA. This exclusive agreement applies to all current IOP installations as well as in-office pathology installations with new specialty physician groups.
Pat Kalish, IOP’s VP of Corporate Communications, commented, “We have entered into this exciting new relationship to support our current clients’ in-office pathology laboratories as well as new IOP clients. Matt has captured payments when clients initially were rejected for reimbursement. We are the ONLY firm providing this critical service as part of our standard agreement. Matt is a well known expert headquartered in Richmond, VA. He spent nine years working for APS Medical, the oldest pathology only credentialing, managed care contracting and billing company. Before that Matt ran managed care relationships for multihospital systems. He brings added value to every IOP installation."
Matt stated, “The performance of practice based anatomic pathology labs is highly dependent on an efficient and effective operation of the lab and an understanding of payers’ policies towards the services provided. We have seen credentialing, claims coding and contracting be the difference between highly effective practices and a failure to meet expectations.”
Pat continued, "Large specialty practices with an IOP pathology laboratory immediately see the benefits of our turn-key program. Our clients have reporting, information management, proper credentialing, compliant billing and local technical support unmatched by our competition. IOP specialty groups practice at a high standard of patient care plus are more productive. They all have on-site pathology consultations, which is unfortunately not the current state of affairs in pathology today. We are truly the market leaders with over 50+ installations in 20 states.
IOP guides specialty physicians in establishing their own compliant in-office pathology laboratories.
