    I was not aware that Blue Cross even recognized Q0091. Question: does your office actually do the pathology to report 88142? Because that should only be reported by the lab/pathologist. Wouldn't you want to report 99000 to indicate you collected the pap and sent it to the lab? As for the modifier, most likely -25.

    One of the girls in the office spoke with BCBS. I thought the only thing you could bill was

    Wellness code

    Thanks for that information I will start billing out 99000
