CodeMap Compliance Briefing: 12/10/04


Editor's Welcome,

Many readers have responded with questions concerning the new flow cytometry codes discussed in the November 19th CodeMap Compliance Briefing. The examples included in that briefing left a number of issues unresolved, so this week we present two new, more clinically relevant examples that should answer many of your questions. The following coding recommendations represent our best opinion at this time.

Upon issuance of new guidance we may revisit these examples to ensure our interpretation remains accurate. Please keep the questions coming.

Sincerely,

Charles Root, Ph.D.
