Thread: Uterine pregnancy after failed tubal.

  1. #1

    Question Uterine pregnancy after failed tubal.

    AAPC: Back to School
    A physician asked me if there was an ICD-9 code for supervision of pregnancy of a patient that had a failed tubal. I asked if this was complicating the pregnancy in a specific way and the response was that it wasn't affecting the patient physically but was emotionally....specifically the patient is experiencing depressive reaction to the pregnancy.

    Would it seem appropriate to code 648.43 and 300.4 for this situation? Please advise. Appreciate the help! Thank you, RD
