Default Molar Pregnancy

Pt was diagnosed with a molar pregnancy and suffered a spontaneous abortion in the ER. She is now presenting to our office for a follow-up visit. My question is what ICD-9-CM code would be appropriate? My provider wants to use the molar pregnancy, but I am thinking that if the patient suffered the spontaneous abortion, the molar pregnancy would no longer be appropriate.

Any insight appreciated.

Thanks.
