Followup renal Ultrasound on 40 days old infant

  1. Default Followup renal Ultrasound on 40 days old infant
    New Call-to-action
    Hi, I got a situation here and hope I can get a solution through this forum.
    A 40 day old infant was ordered a Renal ultrasound as a followup on her abnormal prenatal US as they showed kidney dilation. We got a denial as we used O28.3 which should go on mothers records but not on an infant's. Of course, we realized after the denial. The new born does not show any signs or symptoms to reorder this US for us to code and the intention is purely for re screening as per the order.
    P.S- P09_Abnormal findings on neonatal screening was actually coded on the initial birth claim. What would be appropriate diagnosis code to code in this scenario. Thank you!

    Hmm, reviewing your post I almost think you may have posted this here in error. I almost believed if you posted this in radiology or new born that tends to P codes you may have a better response for help.
    I wish you success!
