I really do not find that an "abuse". You are doing the work x12, so the billing (charge) should also be x12!

We still bill 88305 x 12 on prostates. It is common to do that,
despite the obvious abuse this represents.

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.
