Hi all,

What are the CPT codes for special stains (organisms vs non-organisms) that
are being used?
I don't deal with CPT codes, but a question has been brought up and I'd like
to know what they are. As I 
understand it there are only two, one for organisms and one for all others,
is this correct and what are they?

Thanks again!
