CPT Experts,
    If I understand a recent histonet question correctly, you can't charge
twice for the same antibody on two different blocks of the same case,  but
you CAN charge twice if it is two different antibodies.  Isn't the CPT code
used the same for all IgG antibodies?  So aren't you doing the same thing
in both cases, charging twoice for the same CPT code?  How does the
difference between these two scenarios get deciphered by Medicare or the
Insurance powers that be?
   Just curious.      Sandosis

PS How does this relate to special stain charging when you perform the same
stain on several blocks of the same case...
