This would be one specimen, since the nodes were not separately identified.  You would charge an 88331 for the first block and 88332 for the second block.

(To the best of my knowledge!!)

Subject: [Histonet] Is there a Pathology billing hotline?

Today we received one container labelled 'sentinel nodes' for frozen section. There were five nodes and they were placed in two chucks. How in the heck are we to know how to code for charges for this?  Is it per container, per node, or per frozen?  Plus, is there a person or agency that you can call to ask these questions?
Thanks, Jennifer Johnson
