Thread: E/M coding for newborn-infant

    Default E/M coding for newborn-infant

    AAPC: Back to School
    I see in the ICD-9 book there is a code for "Newborn health supervision"........ V20.31(under 8days old) and V20.32 (8-28days old) are these the codes to use for regular visits 99381/99391 until the 29th day of life? The wording is just a little different than "Routine infant or child health check" code (V20.2), Thanks

    Yes, those are the diagnosis codes to use for a newborn Well Child Check.
