Supervision of "other" pregnancy

  1. Smile Supervision of "other" pregnancy
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello,
    I was hoping someone could tell me what does it mean the word other in these two codes:

    Z34.83 Encounter for Supervision of other normal pregnancy
    O09.892 - Supervision of other high risk pregnancies, second trimester

    Does it mean other than her first child or doesn't apply also to other pregnancy like If someone has had a miscarriage, than their pregnancy would be an "other" but they would be having their first child?

    you're help appreciated,
    thanks in advance.

    you count the pregnancy not the number of births so if she had a previous pregnancy that did not result in a live birth it still counts as a pregnancy. so supervision of other pregnancy is other than the first pregnancy regardless of outcome.
