I am trying to code exposure/effect of maternal use of cocaine for a patient older than a newborn. I have looked at exposure, effect, history and am not coming up with anything. There are no documented congenital malformations. Has anyone found a code for this? Patient's first-listed diagnosis is PTSD, then ADHD and there is no clear documentation that these are the effect of maternal cocaine use. Any ideas?

Look at you guidelines for chapter 16. If a condition is present at birth and continues throughout the patients life chapter 16 codes apply. So if I am reading this right ( I don't specialize in Peds) you can still assign P04.41 or P96.1 if the child is having withdrawls. hope that helps.
