Thread: Repeat Pap smear

    Default Repeat Pap smear

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm having trouble figuring out how to code for repeat screening pap smears for patients who come back to the office because the lab said that the sample was inadequate.
    For Medicare patients, would I code Q0091-76 and ICD-9 code V76.2?
    Would I use the same codes for NON-Medicare patients? If not, how would I code a repeat screening Pap smear for NON-Medicare patients?

    795.08 is the ICD-9 for unsatisfactory smear
