    Default High Risk Pregnancy-constitutes coding a patient
    Medical Coding Books
    I am looking for documentation, actually a listing, of what constitutes coding a patient as high risk during the pregnancy. I know many of the common ones but if anyone can share a full listing or tell me where to look I would appreciate it.

    I'm not sure which state your in, but our State medicaid program provides us with a list of codes they consider to be high risk. You may want to check with them.
    Hope this helps.

    Default response to high risk pregnancy
    any chronic ilnessess complicating the pregnancy which is confirmed by the treating provider as 'high risk' suffices
