    Default threat abortion

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello everyone,

    My doctor coded threat ab (640.03) with CPT code 76830. I query with physician and she said that is a GYN diagnosis. Can someone clarify that???

    Thank you

    That's a non-obstetrical ultra sound.

    Hi there,

    640.03 is in the pregnancy complication code range.
    Try 76815 for abdominal and 76817 for vaginal U/S.

    Does this help?
