    Newborn Delivered from a Drug-Dependent Mother

    Question: We recently had a newborn delivered from a drug-dependent mother and the newborn had a positive drug screen, but displayed no symptoms. What code should be assigned?

    Answer: In this case it would be appropriate to assign code 760.7X, Noxious influences affecting fetus via placenta or breast milk, as an additional code since the newborn was affected to the extent of having positive findings.

    Coding advice on code assignments contained in this issue are effective with discharges July 1, 1991.
