Our facility participates on a Residency Program which provides OBGYN teaching. Should an E/M observation code (99217-99220) be billed or E/M outpatient code (99201-99215) when the patient is on Labor and Delivery for 24 hours or less?
Thanks.

The e/m observation codes should be used, 99217-99220. Some insurances want you to use the 99234-99236 codes. Check with your insurance first.
