In hospital (Primary clinic) few Nurse practioners & physicians perform papsmear .

Except one Physician everyone code for papsmear (V76.2).

Physician code Routine GYN (V72.31). As per her she does the "GC" (infection screening).

I checked with other Nurse practioners and they do that screening too

What is the correct code for them to bill insurance company?

Thank you

The V76.2 is excluded when you bill the V72.31 meaning you do not code them together. If you patient has had a total hysterectomy then you would add a V76.47 and the appropriate V88.xx code for the absence of the uterus and cervix. If the patient has a remaining cervical stump and this is what was pap(ed) then you would bill the V72.31 with the V88.xx code for the absence of the uterus with a remaining cervical stump. You would also add the V code for the HPV screening.
