We bill for CPT 99436 on the baby's account, in addition to the admit exam (99431 for a well baby or 99221-99223 for a sick baby).

I'm new to hospital charging for newborns. My doctor seen a newborn in the hospital 99460 and then the second day he did a circumcision. Do I charge just for the circumcison only on the second day or do I also bill for a follow up visit as well? Help :confused:

E/M bundled with procedure

Unless you have a significant, separately identifiable E/M service the follow-up done on day 2 is bundled with the circumcision. Code only for the procedure.

Hope that helps.
