Hi Dr Cartun
That was our worst-case scenario, but our LIS was able to build logic so that it will convert 88342 to 88341 after the 1st, for each specimen (rather than case). It's been working well for the past 6 months or so...

For those of you doing clinical IHC testing, have you been able to automate the billing of IHC (88342 vs. 88341) or do you still manual bill?  Our IT staff wants to build-in a "88342" and a ""88341" for every antibody that we run and then have the pathologist select the appropriate one for billing.
