IUGR dx for ICD10

Misty Posted Mon 23rd of May, 2016 15:47:54 PM
I'm looking for the correct ICD10 code for Fetal growth retardation unspecified for the fetus. The icd9 code was 764.9 with this description and it cross references to P05.9 and this code is only to be used on newborn records. I am billing for the mother, doing f/u ultrasounds. Is there a better dx code to use? Thanks

ICD code P05.9 seems to be appropriate. However, there are other range of codes for mother care:- O36.599(Maternal care for other known or suspected poor fetal growth, unspecified trimester) O36.5990-O36.5999
