I have an np that wants to bill for Pap smear. What code should we use and can we bill with an office visit? We send the pap out to the lab.

Is the lab not billing? If the lab is billing then the physician office does not bill for the PAP. The collection is inclusive to the office visit. You can charge for specimen handling 99000 for preparation to send to the lab but very few payers consider that code payable.
