Thread: Exam of a Stillborn Coding

  1. #1

    Default Exam of a Stillborn Coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our practice code and bill for Medical Genetics services, often our physicians are asked to examine stillborns. We have been billing CPT 88016, the description of this code is autopsy. Recently our physicians questioned the use of this code, I've tried to research and everything that I come accross points back to CPT 88016. Does anyone else out there use this code for this reason?

    Still born with brain 88014.
    If it was documented " Macerated" stillborn , then you can code 88016
