[Histonet] Grossing high complexity testing

CLIA '88 considers all grossing to be "high complexity testing".  CAP,
just last year, has made a statement that they consider small specimens
to be considered less than grossing and therefore not high complexity
testing.  CAP still considers larger specimens as grossing.  The problem
you run into is that if you are required to have CLIA certification as
well as CAP you must still meet the requirements for CLIA.  As far as I
know JACHO is staying out of the conflict.

Does anyone know if "Grossing" is considered high complexity testing
only by CAP and not by CLIAA or JACHO?
