Screen vs Exposure STD

    Default Screen vs Exposure STD
    Medical Coding Books

    If a pt has a dx of sexual exposure or dx exposure to STD, would you bill
    V01.6 for exposure to STD and V74.5 for sexual exposure? These are office visits and the providers use both dx.

    Hi Amy
    If the patient has been exposed to the STD then the code to use would be V0.16 (contract with or exposed to) If the patient is there of screening for STD then the code should be V7.45 (screening examination for venereal disease) I believe id there is a history of the exposure then use the screening code.
    Hope this helps

    Smile V01.6 vs. V74.5
    I code V01.6 when "exposure to" and V74.5 for "screening". I don't code both together.
