    Default Essure Dx
    Per the coding companion it list 2 codes based on what the md is doing.
    659.41 Grand multiparity , delivered with or without mention of antepartum condition.

    V25.2 Sterilization
    V61.5 Multiparity.

    I usally come across V25.2 Sterilization only if the op notes indicate the patient is Multiparity I will code both V25.2 and V61.5

  3. Default
    Thank you. I did use v25.2 so atleast that one I think I am safe with. I will make note for the future for the other one.
