GYN exam and when to use z01.411

    Default GYN exam and when to use z01.411
    New Call-to-action
    I'm looking for clarity when using encounter for GYN exam with abnormal findings not related to GYN portion of the visit
    Pt presents to establish and her Physical
    Comprehensive Hx 10 system exam with 9 bullets for female exam
    her HPI and ROS detailed a concern with with a cyst with changes
    in addition Exam revealed thromegaly
    all issues were addressed in the assessment and plan
    I'm wonder if z01.411 is appropriate since the abnormal findings aren't GYN related
    would it be more appropriate to use z01.01(27 yr old) for the abnormal physical findings and z01.419 since the Gyn portion of the exam was normal.
    Honestly I thought that using both codes better defined the visit
    however billing rejected
    Is there a better way to describe the OV?
    Very much appreciate your time and advise

  2. Default Gyn Exam With/without findings
    If a patient is came for gynecological exam with any symptoms related to Genitals can only be reported with Dx-Z01.411.
    If not the symptoms is related to some other physicals then we need to add Dx-Z01.419.

    I don't know of any guidance that states abnormal findings must be related to GYN to report Z01.411. Also, neck and thyroid are routinely checked at a
    GYN preventive exam. Thyromegaly is an abnormal finding. I think Z01.411 is appropriate to report primary and secondary dx possibly would be cyst you mentioned or thyromegaly...can't be more specific without actual dictation.
