    Default Billing preop for planned c sections

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our office is debating on whether or not you can bill for a pre op exam for a planned c section. There are four of us, 2 say no, 1 says yes and the other is undecided.

    Please let me know what your expierence has been.

    Thanks in advance.

    The pre-op for a planned c-section would be included in the global fee. ACOG advises that pre-operative counseling including rationale for c-section is an included intrapartum service.
