Procedure Code-Delivery Following Fetal Demise
|Article Number: 243 | Rating: Unrated | Last Updated: Mon, Jan 31, 2011 8:23 PM|
Coding a patient that had Fetal Demise @ 20 weeks and was admitted to induce labor. Do I code the Delivery code also?
Please reference Coding Clinic, 1st Quarter 2001, pg 5. The coding of this case will depend on how the patient was induced. An induction with Cytotec should be coded to 96,49-Other genitourinary instillation. A delivery code would not be submitted.
