I have been ask to add the v22.1.

I have a prenatal exam order with dx of v22.1 by one doctor

then I have an order with dx of 648.93 and 256.8 by another doctor

these labs where done on the same visit. Can I code the normal pregnancy with the 648.93?

Thank you!!

According to the guidelines, you are not supposed to bill V22.1 (supervision of normal pregnancy) with any of the complication codes (such as 648.93).

I agree - once you get into the complication codes, it is not "normal":)
