Can Z00.00 be used for preventative labs if the patient does not end up getting a preventative exam? As the note below the code states " Encounter for adult periodic examination(annual)(physical) and any associated laboratory and radiologic examination"
SuperCoder Posted 1 Year(s) ago

Yes, Z00.00 is an appropriate ICD-10 code for above scenario.

So even if the labs are not "associated" with a preventative exam we can still use Z00.00?

Yes, you can use Z00.00 even if the labs are not "associated" with a preventative exam.

This code includes the laboratory (as part of a general medical examination)
