    Question Unusual Delivery
    Medical Coding Books
    I am new to OB/GYN coding and have the following scenario that I need assistance with;

    patient delivers baby in the car while on the way to hospital. MD delivers placenta once she get to hospital & performs perineal laceration repair.

    Any idea of how to code this out? I was not given the details on the laceration so general code range will work.

    Thanks much in advance!!
