We're having a problem with reimbursement and wondering how others are coding. Within 48 hours of a newborn being sent home we have them in the office for a basic weight check and measurements. Unless there is an issue these visits are with our nurses. Could someone please advise us how they code?

Thanks,
Patti:)

Within two weeks of the baby's birth, the physician sees the baby billing for a newborn physical; however, we normally do not bill for weight checks. This is done as a courtesy and continuation of quality care of a newborn. Carolyn
