    Looking for other Coders thoughts on billing Vaginal delivery of twins with the following procedures and modifiers:

    Twin A-- 59400
    Twin B-- 59409-52,59

    Thanks in advance

    I believe ACOG suggests the following:
    Vaginal Baby A 59400; baby B 59409-59
    My opinion: don't use -52 as there is a complete delivery only for baby B.
