88142 is code for the lab to bill unless you have an on site pathologist. If this is routine physical then why are you using 616.0? does the patient hav e this condition and is it the reason for the pap? is this a complete physical or a well woman exam. if it is a complete physicial with no complaints the use the V70.0 plus a V76.x code for either cervical or vaginal screening depend upon whether the physician performe a cervical or vag pap. If the physician did a well woman then you code only the V72.31 and add the V76.xx code for vag pap if he performed that one. If the carrier does not pay then it is probable due to patient coverage.
