If we have multiple markers for reporting flow cytometry tests using code 88184, how would this process work for coding?
Codes 88184 and 88185 report the technical component of flow cytometry tests for identifying specific cell surface, cytoplasmic, or nuclear markers. Report 88184 for the first marker, and add-on code 88185 for each additional marker. For example, if 10 markers were performed, bill 88184 once and 88185 × 9.
|88184||Flow cytometry, cell surface, cytoplasmic, or nuclear marker, technical component only; first marker|
