Need some help in billing our first set of triplets. Of course they were delivered by C-Section. Help with both CPT and ICD-9, dont' want to get this wrong.:) Global C-section 59510. I just want to make sure I place my modifiers correct also.

Thanks so much for the help from all!:)

Billing Triplets

Hi Julie,
Whether the patient delivered by c-section, twins, trips, quads, etc, you will only be able to bill 59510 one time. Make sure you use the correct ICD-9-CM code for triplets. Keep in mind that you may be able to add a 22 modifier to the 59510 if the c-section was very difficult (must be documented) and/or if she had more than 13 pre-natal visits. Make sure you have the documentation to back the 22 modifier, and if you use it, write a letter to the insurance regarding why the 22 modifier is warranted. Good Luck!

I would bill 59510 also with v27.5 for multiple live births
not sure about 22 mod as he had to be there anyway. Depends on circumstance.
