OB vists out of global

  1. Default OB vists out of global
    Medical Coding Books
    I would like to get clarification on ob billing. If a ob pt comes in and is having NSTs done and sonos because she has 642.03 chronic hypertension, should we be billing those visits out of the global? Just want to make sure we are not leaving money on the table. And the same for ob pts we are seeing that have diabetes they are also coming in alot more? I am billing the NST and sonos but I do not bill a visit. please help me.

    First be sure your physician's dictate all of these visits. Secondly, at the end when she has delivered if she has had more than 13 antepartum viists, then you will be able to bill these out and have the documentation to back it up. But you need to be sure her regular antepartum visits have exceeded 13.
