What codes are used when a pathologist reads the test from a GI procedure? CPT 43239, 45380, 45384, 45385, 45388. These are all GI procedures with biopsies. The pathologist is reading the results of the biopsy.

I'm not finding anything the the CPT book. Anything I'm researching states the physician or hospital reimburses the pathologist according the the agreement.

Thank you.

For Pathology codes you will need to look in CPT under Pathology/Laboratory /Surgical Pathology ...in this case I would start with code 88300-88309 section depending on specimen type.
