Hi fellow coders
Please help with a coding issue. We have an attending physician that requested we get the placenta from the birth hospital for an infant being treated at our facility. The placenta arrived along with slides (we did not request the slides, just the placenta) and their report. We grossed the placenta and the pathologist will review the outside slides along with the slides we processed. Do I code this as an outside consult even though the outside facility did not request the consult (88323)or level V specimen (88307)? Thanks
