TB Skin Test for HIV patients
HIV positive patients are screened annually for TB because they are high risk. We use the CPT code 86480 for the TB test but I'm not sure what the appropriate ICD 10 code is for the screening. Any ideas? Thanks!

Z11.1 screening for respiratory tuberculosis

According to our billing department they have used Z11.1 and are being denied by Medicare and Medicaid. They are asking for a more specific code than just screening. Should there be a modifier with this CPT code?
