The provider submitted a surgical pathology report showing that 8 specimens were obtained and examined during a surgical procedure. The provider is billing CPT 88329 a total of 8 times for the same date of service. Is this appropriate?

touch prep on tissue biopsy cpt 88333

Good morning I am an auditor for pathology, my question is for TISSUE specimens, can you bill 88333 with either 88104,88112 for INTRAOPERATIVE services, I have read Padgets back and fourth When the specimen is Fluids,brushings or washing you can . Our cytopathology director feels that for tissue speciman because they rinse the needle and creat cell blocks they can I informed them that for INTRAOPERATIVE tissue specimen you code 88333 and 88334(if needed). Please help
