    Default post partum D&C

    AAPC: Back to School
    Dr performed D&C postpartum 11 weeks for retained products of conceptions. Performed suction and currettage. How would you bill this 59812 or 58120?

    11 weeks post vag delivery? if yes, i would bill 58120 as postpartum period is usually 6 weeks. 59160 is for currettage following birth and 59812 is for missed ab

    Default OV for pregnancy during post of from abortion

    Can I code this?

    Patient has missed abortion-uncomplete 1/06

    Patient comes in for office visit and pregnacy test stating had no menstration yet and positive pregnancy at home 02/11.
    Doctor is unsure if pregnant from unprotected relations or if test states pregnant from missed AB.

    Can I code office visit with modifer 24 and pregnancy test?
    Or is this not codable due to post op and maybe test is still postitive from missed AB?
