The primary care provider excises a lesion in the office and sends it off for pathology. The pathology came back with "Superficially invasive, well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of skin, completely excised". Should the PCP be billing based on the result of the pathology since we have the result? I am getting conflicting information stating only the pathologist can bill the result of malignancy and the PCP should bill "benign".
