[Histonet] question about charges

From:"Green, Kathy"

Does anyone have "proof" in regard to the ruling of charging multiple
specimens?  For example, currently if we get a specimen slip with a
uterus, non neoplastic (88307) & an appendix, we can only charge for the
"higher" item.  Our new director is sure that where he was before they
were able to charge for multiple specimens.  Our pathologists bill for
multiple specimens, but out billing dept. says that we aren't allowed.
So if anyone out there does "charge" for multiple specimens like that &
have "proof" or something that I can show to billing, I would greatly
appreciate it.
