Dear Histonetters,
Does anyone  know how billing is to proceed on archival material used to
perform the Hercept test for Her2/neu?  Assuming a clinician and his patient
request such a study to be performed on blocks from several years
ago...could you generate a billing number without a  current procedure date
(aside from billling the patient directly).  This is obviously posing some
problems since there is increased public awareness of this "prognostic"
marker and its' potential  on archival blocks. At the moment we have only a
few requests but I know this will increase dramatically.
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.
