I think that everyone is waiting to see if CMS makes a "policy Change"
to accommodate 88342 +88343 code changes. The first indication may be
"via the 2014 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule final rule due out for
release on or before November 27, or through the 2014 version of the
NCCI Policy Manual, which could be available as early as December 1"
(care of Dennis Padget).

Subject: [Histonet] New CPT code for IHC
How will everyone be handling the new CPT code 88343 for IHC going into
effect 1/1/14? The CPT code 88342 has a new description stating it is
to be used for the "first" antibody and 88343 is to be used for each
additional separately identifiable antibody. The concern is that each
antibody at any point and time could be the primary or additional.
