Replacement of an OB epidural

    Question Replacement of an OB epidural
    Medical Coding Books
    1st Dr placed an epidural for a labor. 2nd Dr came in 12 hrs later and replaced the epidural. How should this be billed? She both Drs get base and time?

    Please refer to the complete CPT description of ASA code 01967. It includes initial placement "and/or any necessary replacement" therefore no additional/separate charge is warranted for replacement.
