I have a case of intrauterine death at 18 weeks of twins. Labour was induced , and then a D&C was performed. I only found one diagnosis P95 but this does not cover twins and I dont think it is right. Also please advise me of procedure coding.

HIO TEAM ANSWER :

The recommended Diagnosis code is: O36.4 (T) . Maternal care for intrauterine death

The recommended Procedure code is: 69.02(T) dilation and curettage following delivery or abortion
