Pediatritian billing for newborn

    Default Pediatritian billing for newborn

    I am new with Pediatric billing. Do we use any other code besides the V30.00 on the physcians claim? Some other V code to say it is a "well ck-up"? Also, if he see's the infant a couple days but is still a "well newborn" do we use the same V30.00 each day?

    Hey,

    I think V20.1 or V20.2 is the correct one.

    Please refer the tabular list for that. BE'coz V30.00 not sounds good for every visit.

    Hope this helps!

    If this is for inpatient coding then you would use the v30.00 for the inpt stay. Once the patient comes to the pediatricians office the code changes to V20.31 for 0-7 days and v20.32 8-28 days. Hope this helps.

    Hey thanks Helen,

    Yes the new codes...

    V20.31 Health supervision for newborn under 8 days old
    Health check for newborn under 8 days old

    V20.32 Health supervision for newborn 8 to 28 days old
    Health check for newborn 8 to 28 days old
    Newborn weight check

    yaa , they're absolutely correct!

    Thank you very much. I was meaning inpatient visits, but the well ck's in office is helpful too.
