I have a pt that had PROM at 20w5d, the physician was in the room preparing to exam patient. When they pulled the blanket back, the infant had delivered, alive. They were unable to deliver the placenta and the patient was taken to the OR for a D&C. She was only seen in the office once prior to being admitted two days prior to the delivery. I am hitting a blank on coding this. Any advice?

Edited to add: we are actually stuck on the CPT coding portion for this case.
Thank you!

Hi Smartin42,

Is it the Dx codes you are looking for?
O42.912
Z37.0
Z3a.20 these 3 codes for the delivery
O73.1 (without hemorrhage) for the D&C

So nobody actually delivered the baby? Otherwise 59160 is the code for postpartum curettage.
