The boss and I were discussing what to charge for our in situ
hybridizations.  She showed me the CPT book and to say the least I was
puzzled...  What is everyone else charging?  When you charge for a
microbe in siu do you also charge all those other codes for things like
digestion and amplification if you are doing those?  We have probes for
the viruses such as HPV, EBV Adenovirus and a few others, but we also
have probes for Kappa Lamba.  We use Dako's Gen point kit, so should we
charge an amplification every time we do a test or only when we do an
additional amp cycle?  Any input will be welcome!
Thanks In Advance,
