Good morning,

I am wondering if there is an ICD-9 code for repeat c-section? Or would I just use 669.71? Nothing else is going on with this patient, no other reason for the c-section.

Any help or guidance is appreciated.

Kathleen

Nevermind! I've been out of the OB coding world for a while and the code just came to me.

Thanks!

Hi Kathleen,
If the patient is still in gestation and not delivered , I think they mean the (repeat c-section) c-section procedure done in previous delivery and want to do the same now for the current pregnancy and i can suggest 654.23 previous cesarian delivery.
