Hello,

My question is if a patient comes in for screening for strep b or any other screening like gonorrhea or chlamydia and that patient is pregnant do i code the screening of that test for the dx or do i code antenatal screening code? the dx that the physician put on the order just said pregnant. the cpt codes that he circled was for screening.

thank you

We bill out the screeing CPT codes with the DX V22.1 or V22.0 (Pregnancy). They are usually paid without a problem.
