Bear in mind it only 88305. 't's not the only CPT code we use for billing. Just all those biopsies......Yes, that will mess up those independent labs that just do biopsies.

It is terrible for anyone that works in an AP lab. There will be job loss from this and some labs will close their doors. There is a lot of blame for this to go around. I blame "client billing" the most. The government is tired of being the "pull through" business for labs that are doing the TC so low. Why should the government pay so much when some labs are doing the TC for peanuts in these client billing schemes? I am sure that played a huge role in why they made such a drastic cut.
