Your Admin. Asst. is obviously a clinical lab person. Tell them to look at
the CPT codes for special stains. They say EACH. The only qualifier is,
you need to have the stains listed individually in the report, i.e. GMS,
PAS done on A1. You will not get reimbursed for a report that just says
"Special stains done on A1".
