Embryo Storage Fees For Multiple Cycles

We bill embryo storage 89342 for a year's storage. We use the rule of thumb, we only bill one year of storage per specimen, not by cycle. For example, a patient has a retrieval on 11/10/2020 and we billed 89342 for a year of storage and received payment from insurance. Patient came back for another retrieval on 3/16/21, and storage 89342 was billed for that cycle. Patient now has embryos from two cycles in storage. Should we void the March 2021 storage and bill insurance again for another year of storage for 11/2021?
