Thread: Rupture of Membranes

    Default Rupture of Membranes

    AAPC: Back to School

    Could anyone help me out in picking upn the approrpiate ICD code for premature of rupture of membrane for 20wks pregnant female.

    The code 658.1 says -premature rupture less than 24hrs prior to the onset of labor.

    I suggested my coders to pick up 658.83- otehr problems associated with amniotic cavity and membranes. Please let me know if this is correct or do we have any specific code?

    Thanks in advance
