Good Morning Histology Managers,

The Chief Medical Director here at my facility proposed a question the other day regarding reimbursement for IHC testing from Medicare /Medicaid patients.  I asked our billing manager, and she was going to investigate the matter, but I know my fellow histology managers out there in histoland are pretty up on these matters, so I am asking once again for your expert knowledge.

The laws have been going back and forth regarding how much we can charge, and I have been out of the loop for awhile.  Can we charge for more than (2) IHC tests for these patients?  Let's say you want to do a panel that consists of (5) IHC tests, can we only get reimbursed for (2) of those tests?  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your information,
