  • 1.  Abnormal BPP due to breathing

    Good morning.  I was wondering what is the best diagnosis code to use when a patient has a BPP of 6/8 due to breathing not observed.

    Hi Rachel,
    Though there is an ICD-10 code for abnormal screening of the mother, a BPP is not a screening test and is done for one or more specific indications. I would attach the ICD-10 codes for that/those indication(s) to the billing for the BPP.
    Hope this helps answer your question.
