    V22.2 specificly states INCIDENTAL Pregnancy Only. can not be used as a Primary DX.
    The Doc must state that it is Incidental to the pregnancy.
    Broken Foot Ect ect.

    Mitchellde and I agreed with that the primary code is 22.0 and 22.1 (not 22.2, which was a typing mistake from me).
    UA is also a part of the global .Michelle was very clear about that. Alright!
