    Default Billing OB delivery when 5 antepartum visits done

    AAPC: Back to School
    My question is when a provider performs the delivery on a patient who has 5 anterparum visits, do you code the global delivery code? I have a carrier stating that it's appropriate to do that and not bill the 59425 (4-6 vistis) and the 59410 (delviery and postpartum care).:

    Default biller/coder

    It depends on the insurance company you are billing. You would need to get the guidelines and bill accordingly.
