What I did was show an example of how coding works with what I know from accounting code. I did that for your thick skulled benefit because you were trying to make something out of nothing. Just like you are doing now.<quoted text>
What you are correct about is that the chart is CLEAR re purpose for a D&C procedure.
634 Spontaneous abortion (non-elective)
635 Legally induced abortion (elective)
636 Illegally induced abortion (elective)
In the case of Medicares' DRG groups, the M.D. MUST additionally specify if induced abortion is related to pregancy that is a threat to the mother's life, or was result of rape/incest (or it won't be reimbursed).
"Abortion is abortion is abortion" & "D&C is a D&C is a D&C" is not intellectually honest. The chart clearly describes the differences. Which is basically what you are saying, Katie.
