If you are performing labs to confirm or get a dx then it should be coded as a screening, if you have a dx ie diabetes or cholesterol and you're doing labs for tracking to titrate maintenance medications, which they are usually on, then you need to code the signs & symptoms and dx. If you don't have a confirmed dx but the physician is running labs to zoom in on a confirmed dx then code signs and symptoms.
