I am coding for a patient who did not have labor analgesic but had anesthesia for a c section which turned to hysterectomy following delivery. I have coded this as 01961 with add on code 01969 along with it. The insurance carrier is denying the 01969 stating that a qualifying procedure was not billed.
How should I be billing this?
Are these codes not billable together?

Thank you!

I would bill 01963. It looks like it will cover c section and hysterectomy during same session.

Sheryl, with an S :)
