    Default induced abortion coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    After how many weeks can an induced abortion be coded as a delivery? I know I saw it on ACOG before, but now I can't find it. I thought it was either 19 or 20 weeks.

    Thank you for your help!

    If pregnancy is 20 weeks 0 days & greater then it's appropriate to bill delivery code. See attached ACOG weblink.
