Thread: OB in Hospital for Nephrolithiasis

  1. #1

    Default OB in Hospital for Nephrolithiasis

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am new at coding and this one threw me for a loop. Hopefully someone can help.

    OB patient goes into hospital and is admitted. Has NST, Sono, FFN and a Nephrostomy Tube Change. (RT)

    So here is what I was thinking:
    Dx: 592.0
    Procedure: 99223 for Initial Care
    59025 for NST
    76816 Ultrasound, OB
    82731 FFN
    50398 (RT) For Right Nephrostomy Tube Change
    99238 for Discharge date

    The patient has been in the hospital for prior Kidney Stones during same pregnancy. Not quite sure which modifier to use. Please help. Thank you.
