    Default Solid rules on billing E/M during the ob global period

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi, I'm looking for solid rules (the resource is much appreciated) on charging E/M visits during the OB Global period. I've tried searching AGOC, but it's like looking for a needle in a hay stack. Any ideas is much appreciated!

    Default Billing outside of the global for prenatal

    Hi - I think the closest you will get to solid rules would be the CPT book
    under Maternity Care and Delivery or CPT Assistant. Good luck.

    Default Insurance carrier policies

    I have found that each insurance carrier has their own policy on how to bill/pay for this scenario. You will need to access their individual policies to determine how and if they will pay for E/M's during the global period.
