limited prenatal care & del quest

  1. Default limited prenatal care & del quest
    Medical Coding Books
    Pt presented to our practice 8 weeks pregnant for her amennorhea visit, with no other care previously. We then did the "new ob" visit at 11weeks, followed by 3 more "q4 week check" visits, before pt "dissapeared".
    Pt subsequently delivered by our practice via c-sect. at 32.3 weeks.

    My question is: do we still bill the global code 59510 for this, or should we actually be using something from 99201-99499, for the antepartum care with a C-section "delivery only" 59514 code due to the limited number of visits for antepartum care?

    (Not likely we will get her back here for any kind of postpartum care....)

    Thanks everyone for your input and help!

    I would bill 59425 for the 4 antepartum visits and for the delivery separately, but it will depend on the payer. For some payers those 4 visits and delivery are enough to bill globally.
