General Compliance Question of the Week

General Question for the Week of November 23, 2020

Posted Posted in General


How would you report the Z3A.- code in the setting of multiple gestations where different gestational ages are given to different fetuses? We had an OB ultrasound case today with twins and dates for fetus A being 8w3d (Z3A.08) and fetus B being 9w4d (Z3A.09). Would you code to the youngest date (Z3A.08), the oldest date (Z3A.09), or are we able to code both (Z3A.08, Z3A.09)?
