IS IT APPROPRIATE TO USE THE DIAGNOSIS CODE R87.619 AS A PRIMARY DIAGNOSIS FOR A PAP SMEAR THAT COMES BACK WITH A RESULT OF AGUS. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THE PATIENT HAS HAD AN ABNORMAL RESULT.

Thank you for your Question.
ICD 10 CM code R87.619 (Unspecified abnormal cytological findings in specimens from cervix uteri) and R87.629 (Unspecified abnormal cytological findings in specimens from vagina) would be appropriate codes for abnormal pap smear AGUS. Choose appropriate ICD 10 CM code as per the anatomical location.
R87.619 code if the specimens were taken from cervix uteri and R87.629 if the specimens were taken from vagina.
Hope this helps!
