Dr. Fadi Bsat created a quick reference tool for his office. Please find it attached, I will also post to the Coding resources page (on smfm website) with the ICD-10 Cheat Sheets
We also have another tool we are hoping to have out by the end of this week that Dr. Barb Fisher has created.
We have another tool - thanks to Barb Fisher, Brad Hart & Trish Malisch for their work on this project
The Coding Committee attempted to create examples to 'guide' you in code selection for common MFM clinical scenarios

This is an excellent tool, much better than what my organization provided us and our general providers.
One questions, can you provide some more info on the statement
"If high risk for complications and hospitalization is recommended same day, it may be preferable to have partner see patient at hospital and document accordingly; please refer to inpatient codes for Initial Hospital Encounter"
I was under the assumption, that my partner and I were essentially considered the same person, so we could only bill one or the other?
Thanks for all your hard work and this excellent resource.
Sean Kenney, MD, FACOG
Oops, Dr. Jain, My apologies, Dyslexia strikes again,
My appreciation also goes out to Barb Fisher, Brad Hart & Trish Malisch for this fine tool!
