What is correct in order to bill out correctly

I have a patient with dx V76.2. The chart was coded with CPT® 99212 and Q0091. I get billing edits stating CPT® not allowed with same date of service. what is correct? Is there a modifier that should be added?

E/M and Procedure on the same day

You can only bill the E/M if they were seen for some other reason then for the PAP smear.
