    Good Morning Fellow Coders,

    I have a specific question regarding Diagnosis Code V74.5 do you have any payors denying for this specific DX code for STD screenings??

    And if you do get denials do you appeal??

    Usually if a pyer denys it is due to covereage as the patient may not have coverage for screenings. If you are performing the test for exposure to a STD then you need an exposure code V01.6 as well.
