Coding for At-Risk Pregnancies

February 14, 2017

PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION:

For a variety of reasons, including delays in childbearing, increased BMIs, greater incidence of systemic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes, etc., obstetricians are encountering a greater number of at risk pregnancies. In addition to the challenges associated with producing positive outcomes for the pregnancies, these providers also need to accurately code the services to reflect the challenges associated with managing these pregnancies.

OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Define the conditions that constitute an “at risk” pregnancy and effectively assign the ICD-10-CM diagnosis code(s) for those conditions.
  • Describe the unique challenges associated with reporting underlying systemic conditions in the context of pregnancy.
  • Distinguish circumstances in which additional billing outside the global package is and is not appropriate.
  • Select the appropriate diagnosis codes based on the stage of pregnancy in which the service is provided.
