    Default need a code

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All...

    I was hoping someone could help me. I am in search of a code for subchorionic hemorrhage. My Dr. gave me this dx and I can't find anything.

    Help please.

    I'm thinking a placenta previa - since the chorion eventually forms the placenta... Maybe 641.13?

    793.99 can used for abnormal finding of placenta on ultrasound. There is no code specific to subchorionic bleed that I know of. Placenta previa and subchorionic hematoma are NOT the same thing. It is a risky practice to assign a code which is not documented in the record.
