I am wondering about OB. We Had a doctor who delivered a patient which I am going to bill 59400 for the total OB. Patient Delivered on 06/14/19, But then another Provider in our Facility took care of the patient on 06/15/19, and then Discharged her on 06/16/19. Am I able to bill a Subsequent visit 99231 and 99238 for the discharge for the Provider who took care of patient but did not deliver? Thanks for any help.

for the first provider, you can bill antepartum and delivery and for the second provider you can bill postpartum care only.

please check whether the providers have any agreement between them regarding delivery billing. if agreement exists, you can bill globally for the first provider and no need to bill for the second. Agreement is for taking care of patients in the absence of another one.
