OB - delivery

My question is if physician #1 does all the prenatal visits and physician #2 (on call same OB group & tax ID #) delivers the baby do you bill seperate for physician #1 prenatal visits and #2 delivery only?

Or does physician #2 bill for the global package?

Thanks
Diane

OB delv

I have 4 OB's and they all see the pt through the ante visit. Who ever is the one that delivers the baby that is who we bill it under. They have their own agreement on how to divy the monies.
As far as the ante visit. it is billed under the md that saw that pt that day. Same group same tx id number.
Hope this helps

ob delivery

In our practice we normally bill the delivery for which ever physician does the delivery and for the antepartum visit we bill that for the physician that has seen the patient the most(if they started to come us prior to delivery with only several visits). Other than that we bill all of our ob visit with commercial insurance as global. An all the doctor's share the same tax id number.
