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

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.
