    Good Morning,
    I was wondering if any other practices use the term "processing" in regards to 88305. I have asked if they are requesting the TC portion only but they state they only want the processing part. Any clues?

    Thank you

    Are you performing the path or are you submitting the specimens to the pathologist?

    In this case both I have to sample the doctor indicated on regular and one processing which leads me to believe its just slide prep. Also I ask you some questions regarding Mohs recoupments from Medicare?

    This code is for slid prep by the pathologist that processes and inspects the specimen. It is not for the physician office to put the specimen slide together. You may ask me anything. I will clear my inbox so you can send me a PM if you wish.
