Thread: Normal pap results w/ endometrial cells

    Default Normal pap results w/ endometrial cells

    AAPC: Back to School
    We did an endometrial biopsy on a patient over 40 yrs of age with a normal pap but showing endometrial cells, which can be an indication of a problem. Any ideas on what code should be sent to the lab for the specimen/reason for the biopsy?

    What about 796.9????

  3. #3

    Default 795.00?

    Scenario: 44 yo here for repeat pap. previous pap wnl except endometrial cells.

    Final pap DX: satisfactory for evaluation. negative for intraepithelial lesion or malignancy. endometrial cells.

    I come up with 795.00. Does anyone agree/disagree with using this dx code? If you disagree, what code would you use?
