    Yes, since screening pap collection is billable to Medicare using Q0091. It isn't a required component of G0101.

    Is this a Medicare patient? If not then I would code 9938_ or 9939_ (depending on age) with -52.

    This is code for the breast and pelvic exam (which I believe Medicare has changed on this and it can be a pelvic exam only)..

    If the pap was done then you would have used Q0091 for the conveyence of the pap.
