We also bill for a Giemsa on all stomach specimens...if it's being performed, read and diagnosed out, why wouldn't you be able to charge for the work? Did he give you a reason? That's like saying oh, you can't charge for services done...

Our hospital recently had an insurance/billing consultant give us some advice. We currently perform and bill for a giemsa stain (special stain group I) on all stomach and esophagus biopsy specimens. The consultant told us that we could no longer bill for those. What stain is everyone else doing and how are you billing it?
