Code 630 covers Hydatidiform Mole, which has very specific qualifications to be considered a Hydatidiform molar pregnancy "Abnormal product of pregnancy; marked by mass of cysts resembling bunch of grapes due to chorionic villi proliferation, and dissolution; must be surgically removed." Depending on the results of lab testing, this type of pregnancy can mean chemotherapy and/or hysterectomy due to the very high risk of cancer.
If you look in the index of ICD-9 2012 under Molar pregnancy, it actually leads you to 631.8 Other abnormal products of conception, which is a new code this year. It is indicated for either molar pregnancy or blighted ovum. And interestingly enough, 632 actually has an "excludes" note stating molar pregnancy is excluded from 632,
I think the 631.8, which now more correctly defines the blighted ovum, is perhaps the first choice for a molar pregnancy until the actual pathology comes back that shows the trophoblastic disease or the vesicluar mole. 631.8 is for Other Abnormal product of conception.
