    so I agree the V72.31 with the V code for the absense of uterus and cervix will do for the exam alon and when he does the vag pap the add the V 76 for the vag pap. Adding the V code to indicate absense of the Uterus an cervix will indicate exam only.

    I HAVE TOLD HIM MANY TIMES THAT THE V72.31 IT CAN BE USED FOR EXAM WITH OUT THE PAP. BUT HE WANT A DX CODE SPECIFICALY FOR GYN EXAM ALONE WITHOUT THE PAP. JUST LIKE WE HAVE PAP ONLY CODE V76.2, HE WANT SOMETHING LIKE THAT FOR GYN ONLY. THIS IS ONLY FOR DAYS WHEN HE DOES EXAM OF THE CERVIX WITHOUT PAP.

    THANKS
