This relates to my previous question about intrauterine death and your answer. Your recommended procedure code of 69.02 will not cover the delivery and still birth of the 18 week old twins. Surely we must code for twins delivery.

HIO Answer:

Since there was an intrauterine death of the twins, the only procedure code is 69.02.No other code for the delivery should be used.
