Here I am again the new coder, and my question is:

Is there a code or a modifer that you use to show the use of an assistant when the doctor performs a C- Section? How do you bill for this? :confused:

Once again, thanks so much for all of the imput:)

For the primary surgeon, you probably will use 59510 if Dr performed the antepartum care, c-section & postpartum care.

For the assistant surgeon, I use 59514 (Cesarean delivery only- no antepartum or postpartum care) and then modifier 80, 81 or 82 depending upon level of detail in the documentation and if assistant is used b/c a qualified resident is not available).
