Learn More About Diagnosis Guidelines for Obstetric Coding

This comprehensive presentation addresses some of the differences and needs of coding for OB. This includes the concepts and guidelines of the global package, as well as those things frequently missed that should be carved out of the global package. It addresses many of the diagnosis coding guidelines and concepts, which are very specific to codes in the ‘O’ category, as well as many of the abbreviations and trimester documentation and needs.

It reviews some of the terminology that is often utilized in an OB practice with definitions and understanding of the time parameters for fetal demise vs. missed abortions. It also captures many of the needs for multi-gestation pregnancies and some of the coding rules that are impacted.

Learning Objectives/Agenda

• Recognize how to bill the global package and how to break it apart when necessary, and recommendations of how to track to avoid lost revenue
• Know what services are carved out of the global OB package

Why is this topic important?
