 Hello all,
After some discussion on IHC billing, I have been asked to verify accepted billing practice for the following situation:
An IHC request for 2 single antibody stains has been made by outpatient oncology practice on a case (same block) that was completed nearly a year ago. 6 IHCs were done initially (billed as 88342 & 88341 x 5). How should the new request be billed? Should a new visit/encounter be created and 88342 & 88341 be billed for this encounter?
Thanks in advance for the guidance.
