Thread: inpatient postpartum visits billable?

  1. #1

    Default inpatient postpartum visits billable?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is it appropriate to bill for rounds after delivery if the doctor billed for vag delivery only. We will not be doing her 6 week postpartum visit so we did not bill the vag w/postpartum care charge. Thank you.

    Yes, you can do this. Charge subsequent inpatient stay code and discharge code. We do this and get paid without any problems.

    If you are only billing for the d/c, is ICD-9 V24.2 appropriate?

    Background: another physician did the c-section and my doc did the d/c only.
