What should you submit as a diagnosis code (ICD10) on a thin prep pap (imaged) - Squamous cells of undetermined significance and HPV: Negative.

As per above mentioned diagnosis there is no abnormality, so the appropriate ICD-10 CM code would be Z01.419 [Encounter for gynecological examination (general) (routine) without abnormal findings].

The appropriate ICD-10 CM code for ASCUS is R87.610 (If sample has taken from cervix uteri). If specimen is from vagina than, the appropriate code would be R87.620.
