    Are you the OB/GYN office? If so, 88175 is not reportable by you, only reportable by the lab/pathologist.

    Wink Postpartum Pap

    Are You Using A Post-partum Diagnosis Or A Preventive Pap Diagnosis? This Maybe The Issue. Also Depending On The Payer They May Only Pay For One Pap In A 12 Month Period. Since A Pap Was Done At The Begining Of The Pregnancy When They Come In For Their Post-partum 12 Months Has Not Past Yet. This Could Also Be Part Of The Issue.
