    HOW WOULD YOU CODE A C/S CASE FOLLOWED BY TAH? 01961 + 01962? IS THIS CORRECT?

    I would use code 01963 if no labor time was involved.

    Are the doctors not from the same group? When this happens in our group (on any type of anesthesia service) we enter actual times for each provider but our system is set to bill the service under the provider with the most time.
