Diagnosis code for aftercare following abortion

Chandra Posted Fri 21st of May, 2010 21:25:40 PM

When a woman comes in for an office visit following an abortion, what diagnosis code should I use? V code for postpartum care or gyn exam?

Within the global period if there is no complication, then it should be the same abortion code with a 99024. But beyond the global period it should be a followup V code (V67.09), a 639 series code for any abortion related complication or a gyn exam code depending upon the case with the appropriate E/M code.
