    Can anyone out there tell me if there is a code from 630-679 to choose from? A pregnant patient comes in and has a colposcopy done. Doctor indicates 795.05 (cervical high risk human papillomavirus DNA test positive. Do I use the 795.05 or is there a code from code range 630-679 to choose from? The code I found was 647.6x (other viral diseases). It indicates conditions classifiable to 042, 050-055, 057-079, 795.05, 795.15, 796.75). Is this code appropriate or is it only used when the patient has an HIV related condition? Please advise. Thank you.

    Thanks for your quick response. Just to be sure, I am still okay to use the 647.63, even though it indicates HIV?
