I have seen this handled in so many different ways, but not quite this way. The practices that I deal with use the Category II codes to track the antepartum and post partum visits as they make the most sense from a "what service was provided" stand point.
Look at the following codes 0500F, 0502F and 0503F. These are all set up in our system as no-charge codes and it is easy to run reports. When we have to do a bill-out due to a transfer of care or a termination of pregnancy it is easy to determine what codes should be billed out.
This is just one way to do it.
