    Post Dx for products of conception

    Promo: Code Books
    Hi,

    I am new to pregnancy related diagnosis codes and need some assistance on how to code the following final diagnosis:

    Products of conception: chorionic villi and decidua, consistent with products of conception

    Would this be a pregnancy diagnosis code or a missed abortion diagnosis code?
