The technical component of the 88305 CPT code is about to get slashed next month by CMS. This will likely have an impact on the growth of in-office labs I am sure. Other codes are scheduled to be cut in 2014, including immunos and cytology 88112. It wont be nearly as profitable to have an in office lab. Plus Urologists aren't allowed to bill 88305x12 any longer. Some were putting cores in 12 different containers.

Just look for more client billing to replace the in office labs.
