IL identifies tests that reflex when medically appropriate. Based upon certain laboratory results, additional tests may be automatically performed and are known as "reflex testing."
In most cases, there is an additional charge to the patient or patient's insurance for these tests. Tests may be ordered with or without the reflex testing except for those that require follow-up because of clinical necessity or regulatory agency requirements.
