[Histonet] H.pylori question

Okay, so I know I have heard rumors about the H.pylori testing being
affected by Medicare.  We currently do the H. pylori IHC stain on all
gastric biopsies.  Has anyone heard that Medicare will change, and we will
no longer be able to do it on all cases?  The last lab I worked in, in
Tennessee, stopped doing it all cases, because of the Medicare changes.
But, here in Arizona, they are still doing it.
What's the scoop?
