    Default Billing for an ob transfer of care

    AAPC: Back to School
    Unsure how to bill for an OB transfer of care. 2 patients transferring care, 1 was only seen 1-time and the 2nd patient was seen 6-times. Please help!!!

    Per ACOG 1-3 visits you would report an em code for each visit. the correct code depends on whether she is a new or established pt and the extent of the history, examination and medical decision making you provide during the visit. If a patient is seen for a total of 4-5 or 6 antepartum visits, report code 59425 one time. If a patient is seen for 7 or more total antepartum visits repport code 59426 on time. Hope this helps.
