    Default OB global visits - not submitted to ins

    Hi everybody!

    We are currently implementing a new EMR and building the billing part of this huge project. It was suggested that we create a "dummy" code for our global OB visits to track within the system. My question,.. Is this how other offices track OB visits? I would appreciate anyones feedback or suggestions of different ways it can be done. Thank you!

    We use PNATL for each visit. This way we can track the # of visits and see if we need to add a 22 after delivery.

    We use 0500F, 0501F, and 0502F then count them at the end of pregnancy.

    We also use a dummy code that is called Prenatal Visit. It is priced at $0 so it does not go to the payers, and is used for our internal tracking of OB packages.

    We also use a dummy code. Tracks antepartum visits within the group so that the reimbursement is split correctly, including for the delivery (just never know which doc will be on call...). I think it keeps them from fighting amongst themselves.
