    Default No

    CPT lumps hospitals and birthing centers together.

    99460 Initial hospital or birthing center care, per day, for evaluation and management of normal newborn infant

    99461 Initial care, per day, for evaluation and management of normal newborn infant seen in other than hospital or birthing center
