I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT A C-SECTION. THE PHYSICIAN DID A C SECTION. AND THE PATIENT CONTINUES TO HAVE BLEEDING FROM THE C SECTION SITE. THE PHYSICIAN WANTS TO BILL A 35840. WOULD THAT BE CORRECT. WHAT WOULD BE THE ICD10. I AM ONLY ABLE TO FIND A CODE FOR CONTUSION AND THE PHYSICIAN DISAGREES WITH IT.

The procedure code that the physician wants to code seems correct. However the ICD for this would be O90.2, Hematoma of obstetric wound. thank you.
