We have a patient who is 20 weeks along in her first pregnancy and has requested a c-section due to her fear of having a vaginal delivery. Our docs have decided to do the c-section per patient request however we want to make sure we code this correctly when she does deliver. Wouldn't we still code this as a term pregnancy when she does deliver and just make sure the patient is aware that her insurance may not cover the c-section without medical necessity?
