    my doctor sends in specimens to be tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea. we send in the requisitions with an ICD10 code of Z113(encounter for screening for infections with a predominantly sexual mode of transmission). Quest has been sending letters stating: " Need Additional ICD10 -limited covered test". This in ONLY coming from tests covered by Molina Medicaid. Quest tells me they have nothing to do with it, it is from Molina. Molina doesn't seem to know what to tell me. Is there some other ICD10 code I should be using on these requisitions?

    Hi,

    My recommendation would be for you to call Molina and determine if they are following the Medicare National Coverage Determination that is listed below for the services that are being ordered.

    National Coverage Determination-210.10 Screening for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and High- Intensity Behavioral Counseling (HIBC) to Prevent STIs

    Here is a link to the ACOG Guidelines for Screening Services for 2018..(see page 15)

    Hope that this helps...the laboratory will not get paid until the order is amended with the accepted diagnosis code. That code should only be amended to the chart and the order with the provider's approval in writing.
