    Default Pelvic pain - What diagnoses would you use

    AAPC: Back to School
    What diagnoses would you use for an OB presenting with pelvic pain? I would normally use 646.83/625.9, but I saw a reference for round ligament pain in a SMFM diagnosis listing presented as 654.43/625.9. Any thoughts??

    I would pick the first set of diagnosis bcause the 654.43 is more for "other abnormalities in the uterus"

    Default pelvic pain

    I code for an OB practice and we use 1- 648.93: other current conditons classifiable elsewhere and 2- 789.00: abdominal pain. I would not use the abnormality of uterus because we would not know there was an abnormality unless the doctor indicated that.

    We use 625.9 for pelvic pain
