[Histonet] 88331 and 88332

From:"Demarinis, Carolyn"

There seems to be some confusion on what codes to use when multiple
frozens are sent on multiple specimens.

I need some clarification, therefore, I am providing an example.

If two specimens are sent to the lab for frozen section labeled:

A)      left upper eyelid 12 o'clock marker

B)      left upper eyelid

Frozen section diagnosis on A) is basal cell carcinoma at margins.

Frozen section diagnosis on B) is no evident malignancy.


Am I correct in using 88331 x 2 in addition to 88305 x 2?

I am getting billing rejections stating that I should be using 88331 x
1, 88332 x 1, 88305 x 2.

If so, please provide me with appropriate documentation.

Thank you.
