The change is that you can bill per block now and not per specimen. This is for immunos and special stains. It does make a huge difference!

Has anyone heard of a cpt coding change that allows us to bill 88342 per slide run instead of per antibody? One of our Pathologist was at a conference and was told that we could do that. It makes a big difference with running cytokeratins on multiple blocks and levels of sentinel nodes.
