    What ICD 9 would our doc use for just a follow up on a spontaneous abortion? Patient was seen in ER and was told to follow up with doc.

    This patient also has Medicare as a primary insurance.

    Thanks for any help with this.

    You use the appropriate miscarriage code. If it was complete, no complications then 634.92. If there was retained fetus so D&C may be needed then 632. There are also other options under 634, so the code depends on the documentation of the visit.
