    Question dx code subchorionic hemorrhage

    AAPC: Back to School
    I think I remember seeing a code for subchorionic hemorrhage, but I can not find it under hemorrhage. Is there really a code for this and how do I find it.

    Default I am also looking for this code

    I cannot find it but I am not comfortable w/ using 641.8. Is there any code more specific?

    I use 640.8X (other specified hemorrhage in early pregnancy) or 641.8X if not early pregnancy.

    Correct dx code for subchorionic hemorrhage is 656.8X
