Hi everyone,

I work for the Hospital. In Medical Primary Care clinic there are few Nurse practioners perform papsmear and Breast exam . They code papsmear (V76.2) only. Is it Ok to code (ICD 9 Dx) screening breast along with papsmear codes?

As per the NP V76.10 (Screening breast ) is OK to bill when the patient goes to Mammogram appointment. Not for the regular clinic.

Please verify
