Re: [Histonet] Triple stain charge

From:"Richard Cartun"

We have an extremely busy urology service here at Hartford Hospital.  I have always found it interesting that we rarely do anything more than a high molecular weight cytokeratin (clone 34BetaE12) for documenting the presence of prostatic adenocarcinoma (when needed).  Yes, we will do a P504S occasionally (along with HMW-CK), but that's it.

Hi Mary,
I'll send you the correspondence I have (it's a few years old) directly
from CAP.
It concurs with the other response you rec'd on the subject.  You can
charge for all 3 as long as the Doc makes comment on each antibody

We have recently started doing PIN-4 triple stain. How do folks charge
for double/triple staining on the same slide? Can you charge for each
