    Hypertension with Cardiovascular disease I11.9

    Hello, I am not strong in cardio :). I am trying understand what constitutes the use of this code. If patient has ASHD, Arteriosclerosis, Cardiomyopathy with hypertension I am thinking that it is possible these can be tied in to the I11.9 if no heart failure. Can they? or not? Do you have...

    retroplacental hemorrhage/vaginal bleeding

    Thank you. I did see that but was not sure as it is not post partum. This was the reason for the C-section. I am thinking the option of coding vaginal bleeding as the retroplacental hemorrhage was found when the placenta was removed via the C-section. I do not find any other appropriate code.

    OP report/procedure not listed

    Good afternoon, I am trying to code a Operative report, the provider has left off the name of procedure. I know what was performed but is this acceptable? or should I request the provider to addend the report? Thanks,

    OB Coding in/out of package

    Florida Medicaid is the same with a limited number of visits, so we have to make sure if we track the visits carefully. The visits are coded with a HCPC code H1000. If the patient comes for a unrelated problem then we use E/M codes.
