From:"Riesen, Rebecca"

I just attended a meeting on coding and compliance at NSH in Ft. Lauderdale and this was one of the topics.  It was suggested that the code 88161 be used for touch preps, with the warning that if you use it along with a code for a frozen section it will be thrown out.  You can only code for the touch prep when there was no actual frozen section performed.    My understanding was that you CAN code for permanents and touch preps together, just not the frozens and the touch preps.  I hope this was helpful and if I misunderstood at the meeting, please feel free to correct me.  THANKS!
