If you have pregnant woman come in the hospital and she has diabetes but it was not diagnosed as gestatational diabetes, but they gave her insulin @ that visit would you code that visit with a V5867?

If one of our patients had a previous history of Diabetes and is admitted with prime DX of diabetes, I would code it as 648.93 and 250.0X (with either type I or II according to chart).

I would not use V58.67 for the insulin unless she is chronically on insulin.

1. if the pt has established diabetes (prior to pregnancy) the code would be 648.0X, 250.XX, (if currently on insulin)V58.67
2. if the pt only has gestational DM then it would be 648.8X
only use the V58.67 code if it is documented the pt is a LONG TERM insulin user.
