Thread: Newborn hearing screening code

  1. #1

    Wink Newborn hearing screening code

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone tell me if it is appropriate for a hospital to code V72.19 for a newborn hearing screening before the newborn is discharged, in cases where an outside service is performing the service while the newborn is inpatient? Is is appropriate for a hospital to code for a newborn hearing screening unless the newborn fails the screening?
