    Hello

    We have MFM physicians who perform the above procedure in conjunction with Cardiology. We have been using and unlisted code for the MFM physicians portion and cardiology is using 92986. We are asking for guidance in which code for the MFM portion would be correct.

    Hi Monica- 

    Thank you for your important question! Given the importance and complicated nature of the question, I am going to forward your question to our SMFM Coding Committee Q&A box; this way we will give you a consensus answer from the Committee (turn around about 1 week) and also documented online for future reference. This is a very important topic, and I think having the Committee formally respond will benefit the SMFM members the best. The response will be posted on our Q&A site (smfm.org/coding) and we can also post it back to the Communities page here once completed.  

    Of course, anyone else can share their response and experience here as well on the open forum. 

    Thank you very much!
