    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello. a pregnant mom presents for contractions...she is put on a fetal monitor (NST), given betamethasone injection and has a vaginal screening or evaluation to check for dialation, maybe some labs, she stays for a few hours for monitoring. how would this be coded? Little debate on how we are doing it now and what it probably should be going forward. Thanks!

    This forum is for information on Local Chapters.

    You probably will get better response if you post your question in the OB/GYN forum.
