When billing for special stains, we are appending CPT 88312 for group I
stains. However, there is some confusion when it comes to how we can bill.
The CPT book states this code is to be used for special stain group I...
each. Does this mean each slide that gets stained or each type of stain
used? Any help on how you interpret this would be greatly appreciated.
