Don't forget to add the 88307 charge for the specimen to the frozen
charges (88331, 88332)

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

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!!)
