Does anyone have a suggestion of the correct ICD-9 code for fetal lung maturity? Thanks!

Hi Volanna,

Sounds like you are trying to justify an amniocentesis when the results are basically normal (fetal lung maturity). I guess what I mean is it appears that the reason for the test was to see if the baby's lungs were mature yet. What was the reason the test was done to begin with? Was there premature rupture of membranes or something?
