    V22.2 is secondary only allowed, what was the reason for the lab test.

    If there are no signs, symptoms, or dx of somthing other than normal pregnancy ere then you have a V22.0 or V22.1 and it is part of global. If you have a UTI in a pregnant woman then it is 646.63, so it really depends on why he is checking the urine.

    Why don't we give V22.1 or V22.2 as the first listed diagnosis, when the pt is for routine OP prenatal visits when no complications are present. This is only when the patient does not have any disease/diagnosis from chapter 11.

    {When ever patients come for prenatal Intial or susequent visit, it is routine to do urinanalysis test done (nonautomated without microscopy eg dip test) as a routine (Not the panel). It is a mandatory for every prenatal visitvisit}. Is it included in global

    You may have meant V22.0, or V22.1 these are first listed only, as V22.2 is secondary only allowed.

    Just to be clear though...you can't bill for the UA 81002 in a OB global visit. The UA is part of the global service. I wasn't sure if that message was made clear. Even though the diagnosis would be V22..., you can't bill for it when the provider is going to bill the global service, unless of course, there is a complication or other illness not related to the pregnancy.
