I work for a reference lab. Per NCDs, diagnosis Z11.3 is required for STI screening and Z11.59 is required for HBV screening. These Dx's are listed on the non-covered ICD-10 codes for all lab NCD's list.
My question:
If the non-covered Z code is a requirement per NCD, should GY be added?

Thank you for help.

I am updating this for anyone who may have the same question. I spoke with a Novitas rep who stated that when a Dx from the non-covered ICD-10 code list for all Lab NCD's is a required Dx per NCD, a GY modifier should not be appended.
