Regarding 87210


Best answers
Regarding 87210(Wet mount) if this procedure performed as part of pelvic exam without preventive is it included in E&M or do we need code CPT 87210 along with E&M, as in scenario like patient came in for office for vaginal discharge & provider did wet mount, this visit was coded with E&M & 87210 & this showed abnormal results & again after 2 months patient came in for same problem & again wet mount was done... in this case for the second time do we need to code wet mount 87210 or is it included in E&M as it is done as part of pelvic exam, could any one answer this, thank you....

Please do the needful...
