PAP Smear Only

    Default PAP Smear Only

    Good morning -

    Patient (non-Medicare) recv'd letter stating she was due for pap. Patient has not had one in three years. Comes in for just that.

    Physician billing 99213 with V72.31 stating this was a Well Woman Exam.

    The note is in no way "comprehensive" in terms that History only adresses Past History and 1 ROS. Exam only addresses Constitutional and Pelvic exam.

    I am not sure that a 99386 with V72.31 would be appropriate. But neither is billing 99213 with the V code.

    Any ideas?

    I am not sure about your state's medical assistance program, but Virginia Medicaid will reimburse it under a S0610 (new) S0612(est) which is specifically a gynecologic exam (Contact your state's medical assistance program to verify their acceptance of S-codes. So many insurances don't even recognize it
