RE: Complynet

From:"Weems, Joyce" <>

This is true in GA too. Our medical director has contacted the local review
board, but we have no changes yet. I thought it was just our region or I
would have alerted everyone last year when I discovered it!!!  I have a
feeling now, that is it nationwide. We need to check with the Medicare
powers that be to get this changed. We have an inventory of 75 + antibodies,
and no Medicare reimbursement for any except Her2Neu. What a mess! j

	Good Afternoon to All:

	Is anyone out in Histoland using the Complynet system to check for
	necessity.  We are having problems in that the only 88342 CPT codes
that the
	Laboratory Medical Review Policy (LMRP) are accepting are ones that
	ICD-9 codes of 1740-1746, 1748-1749, 1750, and 1759.  These are the
	codes listed under the LMRP for Her-2/neu.  Is anyone else having
	88342 CPT codes rejected by insurance companies?
