cpt code 88341

Jerilen Posted Wed 28th of January, 2015 14:37:56 PM

Medicare is denying claims with multiple units of 88341 stating that only 1 unit can be billed and if you need to bill more you have to put each one on a separate line on the claim. Can you tell me if this is right?

Thank you for your question.

88341 is used in conjunction with code 88342. The code descriptor reads:
Immunohistochemistry or immunocytochemistry, per specimen; each additional single antibody stain procedure (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure)

Yes, you would want to bill out this new code on individual lines to report how many stain procedures were performed.
