Thread: Dx code for annual physical

  1. #1

    Default Dx code for annual physical

    AAPC: Back to School
    What is the most appropriate diagnosis code when coding for an annual physical (female)? The provider does the breast and pelvic exam as well.

    V72.31 is the best code to use. If no gyne exam is performed, use V70.0.

    I agree with carafry. V72.31 states Routine gynecological examination. General gynecological examination with or without Papanicolaou cervical smear. Pelvice examination (annual) periodic).
