My doctor has a claim for a patient with a personal history of breast cancer getting a screening colonoscopy. Medicare won't accept Z85.3 as a diagnosis code for G0105- what would you use? No other family history, personal history, or other usable code in the documentation.

Why are you coding the high risk colonoscopy if the dx doesn't support it? I would query the provider if he is requesting G0105 and not G0121.
