I don't think it is a CAP requirement, I think it has something to do with
Medicare/ Medicaid and the insurance companies for reimbursement. Hold on, I
have to check my ICD-9 code book

Didn't I read that CAP has a regulation that a lab cannot charge for more
than one of each immuno on the same case, e.g., cannot charge for two
S-100's on the same case, even though they're on different blocks?   Does
anyone know where to find the justification for that?
