Error Description: Newborn Delivery Claims without gestation age
How to Fix: On professional claims, the CPT procedure codes must be tied to the appropriate ICD-10 diagnosis codes.

If the weeks of gestation code is missing or not pointed to on one of the four diagnosis pointer fields in the delivery detail of the claim, the delivery detail will be denied.
