Re: [Histonet] Billing for ER, PR, Her2/Neu

From:"Richard Cartun"

It all depends on how your pathologists interpret them.  We use Dr. Allred's semi-quantitative scoring system for ER/PR so we use 88360.  We also use 88360 for HER2 based on the scoring system of 0, 1+, 2+, and 3+.

We have been discussing which cpt code is appropriate for the IHC for Er, PR, and Her2/Neu. Currently we bil them as 88342 but some of the pathologists feel that we should bill the stains as 88361. Look forward to your valued input.
