We charge for two if when the specimens are received there is a clip on
one of the placental cords.  The same for twin placenta's that aren't
fused, if there is a way to distinguish between the two, we bill two.

Can you charge 88307 x2 for fused twin placentas? I'm not sure as
strictly only one specimen was received, but our billing company says
