The procedure code is simple. But I am not sure what the prinicpal diagnosis should be N93.8 Other specified abnormal uterine and vaginal bleeding or N85.9 Noninflammatory disorder of uterus, unspecified. Uterine bleeding was the cause of her admission

HIO Answer :

The proper code for this case is "N93.8 Other specified abnormal uterine and vaginal bleeding. Dysfunctional or functional uterine or vaginal bleeding NOS"
