Can anyone give me information regarding technical billing aspects on consults.  The situation is that Our Pathologists are a separate business and bill for the professional component separately.  We have begun to do more and more slide preparation, special stains and immuno on outside consults.  Can we separate out the technical aspects of the work done and bill the physician sending the work to us?  If so, do we use the cpt codes for each individual test(stain, immuno etc.) done, or just charge the technical component of 88323.
Thanks for the help
