Re: IHC slide cost

From:Jan Shivers

In veterinary medicine, we do not use CPT codes, so I was wondering what the
going rate is out there for IHC tests, and if the charge INCLUDES the
pathology MD evaluation or if there is an extra charge, over and above
performing the IHC test, for the pathologist's fee.
