Re: [Histonet] IHC Cocktails: Can we charge multiples?

From:"Richard Cartun"

What antibody cocktails are you referring to?  I would think that in
order to charge multiple antibodies in a "cocktail" you would need to be
able to discriminate the patterns of immunoreactivity for each antibody.
 For example, you should not be able to charge for two antibodies
performed on the same slide when they both yield cytoplasmic
immunoreactivity unless, of course, you use two different chromogens. 
Personally, we should be doing everything within our power to reduce the
cost of health care; not make it more expensive.

I recently attended a conference where I was informed that we can
charge for
mulitple antibodies when we do an IHC cocktail.  For instance; my
cocktail has 3 different antibodies in it and we've always just charged
88342 for it, but could we charge 88342 X 3 for each of these that we

I'm just wondering if anyone out there does charge for each antibody
their IHC cocktails and, if so, whether or not any problems arose from
practice.  Also, are there any references that say in black and white
this is all on the up & up?
