Our practice is new to billing for pathology services. At this time we are just billing for the technical component. If the pathologist marks 88305 x 2. Specimen #1 from a Lipoma in the ascending and specimen #2 from a sigmoid polyp would I need to bill these on seperate lines with a modifier -59 on the second or just bill 88305x2 without a modifier. Any help you can give would be very appreciated. Thank you.

you would bill 2 units of 88305 no modifiers are needed. If you are doing stains same rules would apply for example: 88312 X 2 this would also not require any modifiers.
