Hello,

I have not done coding for deliveries for a while and need some help. With Vaginal deliveries not complications it should be coded 650, V27.0.

If the patient had a perineal laceration during delivery, should this be coded rather than the 650 Normal delivery? I want to make sure I am not making it more difficult than I have to. The hospital is coding it but as we know they have a different set of rules for inpatient.

Thanks :):confused:

YES, normal uncompliated delivery 650 and V27.0

if laceration then use the 664.xx instead of 650
