Please help. I am unsure what to do if our office does lab work and I need to submit a panel code but we don't do all the tests included in the panel, but Medicare won't pay the codes individually.

Unfortunately for your case, you have to report each test individually. If appropriate, consider getting an ABN for the noncovered tests to let the patient know he/she may be responsible for payment.
