Anal Swab

Selina Posted Thu 28th of March, 2019 14:21:07 PM
Hello, Is there a CPT code for the collection of anal swabs for HPV (aside from the lab code). It was collected as part of a Level 4 OV. Thank you!

Hello Selina,

Thank you for your question.

 

There are no specific CPT® codes for collection of anal swabs for HPV (other than the laboratory/pathology codes).

This part of service will be considered inclusive in the level 4 outpatient visit evaluation and management performed on the billed date of service.

 

Thanks
