Can you bill 88333 on core tissue biopsy and cpt codes 88104 or88112 together,
Pagdgets say that only for Fluids, brushings and washings- with guidelines. But our cytopathologist here feel that when they do the touch,and rinse the needle , prepare a cell block,that they can bill for this for CORE TISSUE.

Please help, i have read every guideline and it clearly says that for tissue(i.e core) the only code to report is 88333/88334(if necessary).



Thanks
Lisha
