    Hi, does anyone know the proper way to code a wet prep for a Medicare patient with a vaginal infection? Should I use 87210 or Q0111? Thanks

    you-d report the wet-mount code (87210) for a private payer or the equivalent Q code (Q0111) to Medicare.

    You would report the 87210 with modifier QW showing it to be a CLIA waived office test.
