I have a question about billing IHC on MOHS.  When I go through the coding
rules..I can defend it either way... I think. Ha!  If you are doing the same
antibody on one site with 5 individual zones, taking 5 independently labeled
slides and each zone requires evaluation before continuing surgery.   Do you
charge 88342 times 5 or just once.  I understand it would be just once if
this was a routine surgical specimen but this is a horse of a different


For example.  Even for frozen sections performed during surgery, additional
margins can be charged as additional frozen sections.

Thanks in advance!
