I am not very familiar with OB/GYN coding. We just recently hired a new OB/GYN and she asked me a few questions that I did not know the answer to, and that I couldn't find any information on. Could someone please answer these for me?

1. Can you bill separately for a paracervical block with LEEP procedures? Everything I found said no for Medicare, and maybe for commercial carriers, but it depended on the commercial carrier.

2. She said ACOG recommended doing spirometry on every pregnant patient with asthma at every prenatal visit. Is this true? And if so, is this separately reportable from the global OB package?

Thanks for your help!

No you can't bill separately for the block. Sorry don't know anything about the spirometry. I have not seen any of our doctors billing for this.
