You should be reporting the to/from dates that the care spanned. I found the below on the Emblem Health website
The following are guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American Medical Association (AMA) for antepartum care only code 59425 or 59426:
  • Report a single claim submission of CPT code 59425 or 59426 for the antepartum care only, excluding the confirmation visit that may be reported and separately reimbursed when the antepartum record has not been initiated.
  • The units reported should be one.
  • The dates reported should be the range of time covered. For example, if the patient had a total of 4-6 antepartum visits, the physician/group should report CPT code 59425 with the “from” and “to” dates when services were rendered.
