No proper coding of any service ever ensures payment. :)
For collection of screening PAP, Q0091 is the CPT. Some insurances pay for it. Some always bundle with the visit, regardless of any modifiers. Some pay with certain timeframe restrictions (such as once every 3 years).
If the PAP is done at the time of a well woman exam, you would typically use ICD10 Z01.41___.
