If patient comes in for repeat pap because of a previous abnormal pap, then an E&M code is appropriate. Depending on documentation & what (if anything) else was discussed/covered at TOS, a 99212 is probably your best choice.
If a repeat pap was necessary because the 1st specimen was inadequate, then I post a no-charge visit to the account for tracking purposes only. My docs elect not to charge a patient or insurance carrier in this case.
