How would you code a pap that says Negative for intrapithelial lesion or malignancy.

Hi LJ, thank you for your question.

Are you asking for diagnosis codes or cpt codes?

Thank you for clarifying and we will provide a prompt response.

Thank you.

There is not a specific diagnosis for a negative pap test. You may consider one of the following diagnosis:

V72.3 (Special investigations and examinations; gynecological examination) when the patient has a cervix

V76.2 (Special screening for malignant neoplasms; cervix) when the patient has a cervix

V76.47 (Special screening for malignant neoplasms; vagina) plus V45.77 (Other postsurgical states; acquired absence of organ; genital organs) when the patient's uterus and cervix have been removed for a nonmalignant condition

V67.01 (Follow-up examination; following surgery; follow-up vaginal pap smear)

V45.77 (Acquired absence of organ; genital organs) and V10.41-V10.44 (Personal history of malignant neoplasm; genital organs) when the uterus and cervix have been removed due to cancer.
