Mohs or not 88314 is for a special stain. They call this histo chemical
because chemical reactions take place in the tissue. This is not IHC. If
you want to bill for IHC on frozen sections you bill 88342. I just lloked
this up in my trusty coding guide.
Hope that helps or adds to the controversy as the case may me.
