I am auditing NICU charts and I am noticing the coders I am auditing are using only the Z38 dx code on the 99464 and 99465 when other diagnostic codes could also be coded. Is there a reference or article that would be indicating that only the Z38 could should be reported with these attendance at the time of delivery codes? Additionally, does this Z38 code need to be sequenced first?
Thanks,
