Question: thyroid CA

Hello:

I have a patient who has Thyroid CA. If she has a delivery prior to 39, which Maternal Fetal Medicine is recommending, would she qualify for the immune system codes--"Other diseases of the blood and blood forming organs and certain disorders involving he immune mechanism complicating childbirth"

Thank you for your time.

Trish Crim, RN

Answer:

In order for a case o be excluded, there must be documentation of an ICD-10-CM Principal Diagnosis Code or ICD-10-CM Other Diagnosis Codes for conditions possibly justifying elective delivery prior to 39 weeks gestation as defined in Appendix A, Table 11.07.
