Hi Annette,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

We regret for the misunderstanding. We provided the answer for general coding but since the answer was required for pathology, we are deleting this post and providing the answer for pathology in the next post.

 

Thanks.

This is for pathology. The pathologist would not perform the delivery. I am looking for a CPT level for pathology. Thank you
