Is z11.52 to be used during the pandemic?

Would you consider this documentation as screening for Covid-19 (z11.52)?


Reviewed information and literature on COVID infection in pregnancy. Reviewed current status of COVID vaccination, including FDA's EUA of both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. Discussed that both vaccines are mRNA vaccines (not live vaccines), the lack of vaccine safety data for pregnant and lactating patients. Discussed statements by ACOG, SMFM and ASRM recommending against withholding COVID vaccine from patients that are attempting to conceive, are pregnant, and are breastfeeding despite specific safety concerns given the known risks of COVID infection in pregnancy. Reviewed potential side effects of receiving COVID vaccine, including rare severe allergic reaction and need to monitor for a period of time after receiving vaccine. Reviewed risk of fever early in pregnancy, risk of fever to developing embryo, and safety of acetaminophen as an antipyretic. Reviewed importance of obtaining both doses of vaccine, and continuation of standard public health safety measures such as routine hand hygiene, social distancing and face coverings in public. All questions answered.

We haven't been using Z11.52 since it is a screening dx code and typically insurance will not cover. Is the patient symptomatic? Been exposed?
