Re: [Histonet] er/pr charging

From:Kelly Simon

According to a story by Lisa Miller in the January
2004 CAP Today, there is a new code for ER/PR and

"CPT 2004 separates traditional tumor morphometric
analysis from semiquantitative immunohistochemistry.
New code 88361 was created to report quantitative or
semiquantitative immunohistochemistry for such
analyses as hormone receptor and HER2/neu testing. The
technical services of 88342 are incorporated into the
new code."
