    Default HELP IP - incontinentia pigmenti coding for preg mom

    AAPC: Back to School
    help - we have a pt who has incontinentia pigmenti. She is pregnant and due very soon. this condition is lethal in most male infants. OB-gyn has been doing normal non-fetal stress tests to monitor baby - baby is a male. The dx that has been billed is 757.33 - her insurance is denying based on dx stating that it doesnt match the cpt and that 757.33 should primarly be billed by a dermatologist. I am looking for feed back, would 757.1 be a more appropriate dx?

The reason for doing the tests is that the condition in the mother is complicating the pregnancy. I could be wrong but
