Even Ayakaneo failed to prove a D&C after miscarriage is coded the same as induced abortion.<quoted text>
Katie: "Now, wasn't your original claim that D&Cs are different depending on spontaneous and induced abortions? From what it says above, there is no difference."
A patient placed within a particular Diagnostic Related Group doesn't mean he/she is same as others in that group. The hospital is reimbursed the same for those in that group, even though they may receive different treatments for different reasons.
Submissions for reimbursement to Medicare for an induced abortion would be clear it is for an induced abortion. Doc/code for Rape/incest/life of mother and Proper ICD-9 code.
I shared yesterday that ICD-9 codes are clear that differences exist:
634 Spontaneous abortion (non-elective)
635 Legally induced abortion (elective)
636 Illegally induced abortion (elective)
Back in Oct. when she 1st tried to defend the stupidity from the pro-choicers about D&Cs. We weren't saying D&Cs aren't the same procedure, we were saying that the purpose for the procedure is not the same for induced abortion as it is for spontaneous abortion/miscarriage, and so they'd be charted in patient's file, coded and billed differently. She then provides codes trying to prove me wrong, but proved me right instead, because she doesn't know what we've been talking about.
<quoted text>For the record DW, I don't read what you copy and paste. I saw a post from Elise stating you were c&p posts from back in January.
"I don't care what was posted back then. The D&C after an elective abortion is the same D&C after a spontaneous abortion. Therefore it is an abortion procedure and will be charted and coded and transcribed as such WITH THE DISTINCTION OF *ELECTIVE**SPONTANEOUS**MISSED **COMPLETE**INCOMPLETE*. DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT DISTINCTION IS?"
Lil Lily replied
"And you have proven you don't understand medical coding and billing."
"You are disputing that a D&C for any type of abortion is not charted,coded, or transcribed as a D&C for the type of abortion it is used for. I have told you time and again it is charted as an abortion with THE DISTINCTION OF THE TYPE OF ABORTION. You have denied that. I provided you the codes above."
^^There she displays just how little she knows of the discussion she entered into, blindly defending pro-choicers when she didn't even know what the dispute was. She thought we pro-lifers couldn't accept that miscarriage was a type of "abortion", when we weren't disputing that, because we know it's medically a "spontaneous abortion".
Then she finishes the post with,
<quoted text>"I've concluded you know nothing about coding/billing/charting."
