    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All,

    I need to know can we bill for global delivery code when the physician sees the patient who is 6 months pregnant or more and the patient has never been to any other physician. If possible I need a documentation for the same.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Neha Bhatnagar CPC, CPC-H

    It will depend on the payer but some accept this because these can be a lot more work and time consuming appointments due to lack of prenatal care. I believe you will want to call the insurance carrier for this one.
