We have a patient who had a D&E for Molar pregnancy 3/17/10. Path came back positive for Molar pregnancy.
Patient presents to OB/GYN office 03/31 complaining of increased vaginal bleeding, cramping.
US was done. Found some fluid collection and some irregular appearing solid components.
Patient was scheduled for 2nd D&E done same day 3/31. with indication molar pregnancy- retained products of conception.
Path came back from this procedure no evidence of Molar pregnancy/ no evidence of Product of conception.
How do we bill this 2nd D&E? Use the same D&E for Molar pregnancy code as billed 3/17?
And what DX do we use? Indication was Molar pregnancy and POC, but not founded by pathology.
