Does anyone have experience in billing for antepartum care if this scenerio occurs:

Patient was seen for confirmation (which has been paid) and then three antepartum visits after that. She has now transferred care. Per ACOG guidelines we billed 99213 with V22.1 and it is being denied for global. We are now being told there is another code we should use. Any ideas?
59425 is for 4 to 6 visits, 59426 7 or more visits...
Thanks!

OB Split Bill

When we have to spilt bill ante partum care we bill out a 99213 for the first visit, then a 99211 for each the 2 additional visits all on the same claim with the different dates of services. We put in the local text that it was for 3 ante partum visits only with transfer of care and attach the antepartum record with it. If it denies we usually just have to call the carrier and have the claim reviewed. Haven't had a problem getting it paid.

No - the confirmation is not included in the 3 antepartum visits...
