Diagnosis coding screening mammogram

  1. Default Diagnosis coding screening mammogram
    Exam Training Packages
    OK, when diagnosis coding this service, the G0202, (and there are findings) is it correct to only put on the v76.11-v76.12 OR should you use the v-code with the appropriate findings code OR just the findings code?
    Thank you, Jessica

    You are required to code the screening first. The findings are incidental and are secondary codes.
