Miscarriage coding help

    Default Miscarriage coding help
    Medical Coding Books
    Have a patient who was seen for her initial OB visit. OB record was initiated. She miscarried before her 2nd visit. Do I bill an E/M visit and what dx. code is used V22.1 or 634.90?

    Default miscarriage
    Since the patient had a miscarriage prior to the visit, was it an incomplete spontaneous abortion? did the provider have to go in and do an D&C to complete? if not, then you should code the office visit since it wasn't discovered until the next visit. you should use the 634 code, since v22 is for supervision of a normal pregnancy.
    hope this helps.
