We have a patient that transferred to our clinic at 28 weeks. When the patient delivered I billed 59426 (7 or more antepartum visits) on one claim with the date of her last office visit and then a separate claim with 59410 (vaginally delivery and post partum care). Is this correct or should the antepartum visits and vaginal delivery been billed on the same claim. Could this patient's care been billed globally with 59400?

Thanks

We bill the antepartum care on the date of the last ob visit, just like you have mentioned. Then the delivery code/claim goes out with the dos of the delivery.
