Lets say a new OB pt comes to our office and they have the routine labs drawn but also want an STD check. Is it necessary to detail each one out? Or would the correct option be to code the Z34.XX code for routine care, a Z36 for antenatal screening, and the the weeks of gestation?

Or would I need to also include Z11.3 if the pt requests an STD panel? Is that not included in the Z36?

Thank you!
