ob question

    Default ob question
    Medical Coding Books
    Pt was in the hospital for induction on June 11 and 12. Induction failed. Pt went home for a weekend.
    Then pt was in the hospital for induction on June 15 and 16 and induction was successful.
    Pt had prenatal visits in our clinic, so we should bill 59400. However, can we bill this extra induction on June 11 and 12?
    And if we can, what codes should be used?
    Thanks for your help.

    For 6/11&12 bill appropriate E/M code with Dx code for "Failed Induction."
    Try to look for it, if you need more help let me know.
