Please confirm if your physician is the main surgeon or assistant surgeon.

If your provider is the main delivering surgeon, then code as :
59510 (C-Section; Antepartum, Delivery with Postpartum care) or
59515 (C-Section; Delivery with Postpartum care) or
59514 (C-Section; Delivery only)

If your provider is the assistant surgeon, then code as :
59514 with modifier 80

You can refer to Multiple gestation policy on this link https://www.uhccommunityplan.com/co...tpolicies/R0064-ObstetricalServicesPolicy.pdf

Hope this helps.:)
