One of my doctors wants to code 88160 on a bone marrow specimen. It was a bone marrow biopsy and aspiration specimen. They coded:
88305 x 2 for bone and clot
88097 for smear interp
85060 for peripheral smear
I don't think you can additionally code the 88160 for touch imprints performed since it seems like that would be unbundling...any thoughts???
Thanks so much!
