Example: Patient had a biopsy (88305), with the a KI-67 (88360) and Pan-Melanin (88342) performed.
We are receiving payment on the 88360. However the 88342 is denying as "payment included in other procedure". Is a modifier required for the 88342? If so, would it also be required for any subsequent 88341?

As Per NCCI edits, 88342 and 88341 does require the 59 modifier when billed with the 88360.
Hope that helps!
