Patient came in at 37 weeks was given epidural. It was then removed with a time of 2036-0840 with out delivering. Should this be coded as 62319 or 01967? Thanks in advance!

epidural w/out delivery

Hi,
The company I work for has us code 01967 with modifier 53 when no delivery occurs and the patient is sent home. Hope this helps!
