    Default Premature Placenta coding for pathology

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi, am looking for an ICD9 code that would go along with a premature placenta with early choioamnionitis and chorionic plate vasculitis diagnosis code to go along with CPT code 88307/26. The infant was born at 27 wks. no mention if vaginal or c-section. was suggested on a site to use 656.70? any other ideas? this is something I will be coding out a lot in the coming months. Thanks!

    Check out 658.4 - needs a fifth digit.

    Good luck,
