description for pathology codes

Best answers
Can someone tell me if it is a requirement for pathology codes 88300 thru 88309 to have a description of the type of biopsy in the claim note? We have been adding the claim line note for years (ex liver bx) and now we are wondering if with the ICD 10 system is this still required. Thanks for any direction on this.
