[Histonet] Touch Prep CPT Code

From:"Stephen Peters M.D."

Joyce and Lynn,
We use 88161 code for intraoperative touch prep. Lynn, it is the understanding of our 
billing and compliance advisors that you cannot bill for the intaoperative touch prep if you 
are all ready billing for the frozen section. If that is what you are doing I would check to see 
if there is a compliance issue. This is what we were told. If anyone knows different I
 am interested in hearing what your interpretaton is.
