I have always considered LEEP's to be in the same catagory as a cone and
charged level 5 or 88397.  We usually receive a LEEP in 2 parts - the main
leep and then a "top hat" portion.  I just considered the 2 containers to be
one specimen.  Recently, we have a new pathologist and he is charging the
main LEEP specimen as a level 5 and the "top hat" as a level 4.    It would
sure be nice if there were some all-inclusive rules about the correct charge
instead of worrying that the pathologist will be considered fradulent when
he charges something that isn't spelled out.    My 2 cents----- :-)
