Rh- Mother

  1. #1
    Default Rh- Mother
    Medical Coding Books
    Is there a dx code for a mother who is Rh- (lacks protein) and will be getting the Rhogam injection but does not have the antibodies?

    Would it be V23.89 (Other high risk pregnancy)? I know that 656.1x should only be used for Rh- mother who has already developed the antibodies.

  2. Default
    I have been using code V07.2 prophylactic immunotherapy for this exact situation and haven't had any problems with denials.

  3. Default
    Per the Society of Maternal Fetal Medicine, code as 646.83, V07.2
