Donor Egg Infectious Disease Lab Screening

The issue we are experiencing is outside labs billing with Z11.3 are getting denials stating improper ICD-10 for the services billed. Medicare guidelines are being quoted as stating the Z11.3 is not a proper principal diagnosis code. Do you have any suggestions/feedback on an additional/alternate diagnosis code? We are having difficulty finding one that is more appropriate. Thanks so much! 138828 Donor C.
