DX: Postpartum Depression w/ Psychosis

  1. Exclamation DX: Postpartum Depression w/ Psychosis
    Medical Coding Books
    This is a psychiatric hospital. The DX is Postpartum Depression w/ Psychosis. How do I code this? Should I use 293.89? Or 648.44?
    Can someone help me with this?

    I would code 648.4_ AND 298.9 You can't just use the 648 code by itself per ICD9 book
