Weegy: We will be discussing the importance of obstetrical, [ as well as newborn coding guidelines in this issue of CCS Prep! There are a few differences in these guidelines as compared to the general inpatient and outpatient guidelines we have discussed in the previous issues of CCS Prep! If you are a coding professional who is not familiar with obstetrical and newborn coding or the guidelines, take the time now to become acquainted with their requirements. Faye Brown's ICD-9-CM Coding Handbook with Answers also has information in this area in Chapters 20-23. The guidelines for obstetrical coding are contained in section 5 of The Official ICD-9-CM Guidelines for Coding and Reporting. They are further divided into the following areas: General Obstetrical Guidelines 5.1 A. Obstetrical cases require codes from chapter 11, codes in the range of 630-677, Complications of Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Puerperium. Should the physician document that the pregnancy is incidental to the reason for the encounter/admission, then code V22.2 should be used in place of any chapter 11 codes. The important thing to remember is that it is the physician's responsibility to state that the condition being treated is not affecting the pregnancy. Unless the physician documents this, the coder should assume that the condition is a pregnancy complication in obstetrical cases. For example, if the obstetrical patient has delivered this admission, and the physician has documented anemia, code 648.2X would be assigned first, followed by 285.9. The physician would have to document "anemia unrelated to pregnancy" to assign only 285.9 without the obstetrical code. We find that it is rare that a physician will document in this manner unless prompted or education has been provided. ] (More)
