    Default another option

    I would lean toward 59409 (vag delivery only) plus 59425 or 59426 depending on how many antepartum visits she had.

    Hi Rachele,

    I'm with Cara; no Modifier -52 on your global OB package. Use the Vaginal delivery only code plus the appropriate code for however many antepartum visits you had.

    Have a super day. Susan
