    Default New Born Transferred V-Code

    AAPC: Back to School
    A new born in a hospital (V30.0) is transferred to an acute regional hospital. Should they also use V30.0 on the UB? or something different - perhaps V30.1?
    Maybe V39.0?

    Default No V code

    I'm assuming the newborn is being transferred to the acute regional hospital because of some problem - respiratory distress, congenital heart defect ... whatever.

    The receiving hospital (acute regional hospital) will code the PROBLEM, not the newborn status.
