I have a question on this code. This code is for a metabolic disorders which is you body isn't processing food correctly causing organs to become diseases or do not function normally. I have offices giving this code to verifi prenatal test screening for chromosomes 18, 21 and 13. Am I correct in saying this code can not be used for this??

Thanks

you need to use a code for antenatal screening. Z13.228 is a code for screening of the patient (mother) which does not sound like what you are wanting.
