    I need some suggestion please on how to code for a child ,that when a fetus was exposed to drugs from mom. We have a pediatric neuro assessment program, which does multiple phychological and learning tests over several weeks. No dx has been confirmed yet. All I have is pt was exposed prior to birth and it is now effecting the childs learning abilities. Any ideas would help

    I'm not positive on this one but one suggestion is to look at Category 760. Sorry I couldn't be of more help to you.
