    I need an explanation of the correct usage of the following 2 codes



  2. #2
    V76.2 is for a routine pap; special screening for malignant neoplams of the cervix. However, excludes the screening for the HPV.
    V72.31 is for a routing gyno exam with or without the cervical pap smear.
    So you would use the V76.2 when a patient comes in just for a cervical pap say that it was abnormal and had to come back. I would use the other for a full annual gyno workup either with or without the pap.
    Hope that helps,
