What would be the dx code and cpt code for an elective repeat C-section.

We have been billing these codes, but 59618 states with attempted vag delivery so I'm thinking this is not correct.

O34.219
Z37.0

59618

I would recommend 59514 or 59515. The cesarean delivery may be planned and performed prior to the onset of labor or it may be performed due to maternal or fetal complications following the onset of labor.

59514 Cesarean delivery only
59515 Cesarean delivery only, including postpartum care.
