    Default preventive code guidelines

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good morning everyone

    To use the preventive code 993XX how many elementes do we need on Exam?

    Can I use V76.2 or V76.10 (without V72.31) with preventive code?

    How about the contraceptive ICD9 Dx codes? Is it included in Routine GYN (V72.31)? or we have to code seperately along with E/M code and mod 25?

    Thank you

    Check out the ACOG website and click "coding". They have an article on coding preventive and also contraceptive.
