Thread: Hospital admit outside global ob

    Default Hospital admit outside global ob

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our ob doc admits one of his/her patient in labor. She fails to progress and an ob outside our group is summoned to deliver via c-section. Is there any way we can bill for the time our ob spent in the hospital? We unbundle and bill for the ante-partum and post partum but there must be some way for our doc's to be paid for their many hours in the hospital. Admit codes?

    You can bill for all of the days upto the day BEFORE delivery.
