Title: Physical one day pap smear following week
Post by: cmtm3324 on July 29, 2010, 10:21:13 AM
My physician does physicals and every now and then does not do the pap smear until the following week (i.e. menstruating) what e/m would I code for the pap smear visit?

Treat it just as you would a "planned procedure". It is a continuation of the Prev visit. Code only for what is done which is only the smear
