RE: HT Grossing

From:"Cheasty, Sandra"

Whether a simple small skin tag or dissection of an entire colon, I was told by the local CLIA rep that the requirements are the same.
It falls under the CLIA High Complexity Testing Personnel Qualifications, Federal Register VOl. 60, No. 78, April 1995, section 493.1489.
If anyone out there can summarize the standard and post it on the Histonet, it would be greatly appreciated. Don't most HT's that have gone through a formal 2 or 4 year bonifide histology college program satisfy these requirements?

Hello Everyone

Does anyone know the ruling concerning HT(ASCP) or HT eligible grossing small biopsies?

Thanks in advance for you input.
