Decal's (CPT 88311) specimen vs blocks vs slides

  1. Post Decal's (CPT 88311) specimen vs blocks vs slides
    Medical Coding Books
    Can anyone tell me where to find current guidelines as to how to charge Decalcification's? Is it per specimen or per block or per slide?

    thanks

  2. Default Decal's
    Per Dennis Padgett, it is 1 unit of Decal per specimen.

    Default
    It's per specimen. This would normally get done before the tissue is put into a block or cut onto a slide.
