Billing Requirement Update for CPT-4 code 88141

Effective on or after May 1, 2008, reporting for CPT-4 code 88141 (cytopathology, cervical, or vaginal [any reporting system] requiring interpretation by physician) has been updated. A pathology report is no longer required. Claims billing CPT-4 code 88141 may now be reimbursed if the patient has recently had an abnormal Papanicolaou smear and the claim is billed with ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes 795.0 Ð 795.09. Failure to document one of these ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes will result in denial of the claim.
