    Default Vacuum Assisted Vaginal Delivery

    AAPC: Back to School
    Anyone know the appropriate procedure code for Vacuum Assisted Vaginal Delivery? Thanks.

    The vacuum assisted portion is recorded with an ICD-9 669.51

    You still use the vaginal delivery 59400. It still is a vaginal delivery. I hope this isn't too late.
