    AAPC: Back to School
    My providers perform deliveries and 2 post partum days in the hospital and we never see the patient again. is it appropriate to bill 59409 with 99231-99233 for each subsequent hospital care visit or is it appropriate to bill 59410-52.

    I would just bill 59410 and not use -52. Sounds like the only difference is that the patient never came back to the office for PP visit during the 90 days. You wouldn't even have known this until the 90 days pass.
