Twin Placenta

    Default Twin Placenta
    Medical Coding Books
    Generally we charge 88307 x 2 for twin placentas, recently I have added another hospital to my service and it was brought to my attention that the placentas must be distinctly marked (ie clip on Placenta A, none on B) for both charges to be captured. Is there a written "rule" or guideline that I can take to a meeting in order to synchronize all three of my path departments. Help. (Up to this point I have not had an issue because all placenta's were clearly marked, the third hospital sometimes have lapses and I need clarification).
