    Default When V30 is not pat of the Dx coding on a UB
    Medical Coding Books
    WE have an IP bill where the Admit code is V30.00, admit day is birthdate of patient, but the Dx fields omit the V30.00 and only list 761.8 and 762.5.

    What do you think the hospital trying to tell us? That the baby was born in a different hospital? or is this a simple error on their part?

    Thanks,

    Lin

    I think it is an error, the V30.00 must be the first listed coded.
