MVA and PREGNANCY

  1. Default MVA and PREGNANCY
    Exam Training Packages
    Pregnant patient comes in after MVA, no injuries or complaints. Do you code V71.4 and V22.2 or just V71.4

    We need to code V71.4 and V22.2

    V22.2 should be added to denote the patient is pregnant .

    Did the Physician state in the record that the Pregnancy was Incidental.
    Make sure its clearly noted in the Record to use V22.2 correctly.

    Just to be clear, the doc's don't usually say that pregnancy is incidental, but they do say that pregnancy is not affected not affecting treatment. Use both V codes.

    Hey,

    I think V71.4 (PDx), V22.2 (SDx) & appropriate E code is godd one!

    Hope this helps!

    I agree with you, you are perfect.

    I was taught to use 648.9* in the first position and V71.4 in the second position. This is for

    ER coding and denotes other current conditions classifiable elsewhere in pregnancy.

    Unfortunately both codes must be first listed so you cannot use both together. I agree with the V71.4 and the V22.2

    Hi Mary

    If there is condition we should use 648.9* or else go ahead to code v71.4
