Can anyone shed some light? I have a case where an epidural was placed and was taken out after two hours on for a failed induction...four days later she came in for an emergency C-section and another epidural was placed.
Question: How would I could for the first epidural...and would I code 59514, 01961 for the C-section?

Your coding is dependent on the diagnosis codes.

What was the diagnosis for the induction? It's very strange that they sent her home. A failed induction usually results in either another method of induction or a c-section immediately following the vaginal attempt.
