Post Partum Complication

Marie Posted Mon 11th of January, 2016 16:27:06 PM

When a patient is seen for, as an example, post partum endometritis, O86.12, do you use a second code from the Z chapter? Thank you.

Second code Z will be used only to indicate the weeks of pregnancy, this is a post partum condition and code O86.12 is self explanatory.
