    I don't think so. I can see where you might think so but biometrics is used for statistical data not health "risks". That is just my opinion.

    I know that this code can be used for the post partum depression screening for new moms. But can this be billed under the newborn or does it have to be under the mother?

    It would make more sense to bill under the mother but I'm not sure what the rules are. Maybe someone else can answer that. Sorry.
