Table of Risk and Pregnancy

    Default Table of Risk and Pregnancy

    I'm auditing OB charts for a carrier requiring E&Ms for antepartum care. Any guidance as to where a normal pregnancy would fall within the table of risk?

    I don't think it does.

    Normal Pregnancy is not a problem/illness, so you really can't count it in the presenting problem category. You would have to go with diagnostics or the management options.

    Just my opinion,

    We use H1000 with the normal pregnancy the V22.0, but most of our clients are medicaid. I only use an E/M code if the client comes in with a problem and use the V22.2 pregnancy state incidental code with the non 6XX.XX code for antepartum visits.

    I have an OBGYN specific Table of Risk that might help you. You can email me at angela.jordan@aapcca.org and I can send it to you.

  5. Default OBGYN specific Table of Risk
    Does anyone have an OB/GYN specific Table of Risk? I am auditing OB/GYN and Perinatology and it would be a very valuable tool to share with the physicians.
