Thread: billing out antepartum visits within the same group

    Default billing out antepartum visits within the same group

    AAPC: Back to School
    This maybe a silly question, but I would like clarification regarding how to bill out antepartum visits for physicians that are in the same group.

    We have an OB group of 5 physicians. They all see their OB patients in the same office but during the patient’s pregnancy they have to rotate seeing the patient at least once during their pregnancy. When the patient’s visits have to be billed out it for various reasons for global insurance, do we bill out for each Dr that they seen or just the one code depending on how many visits they were seen all together (59425-26)?

    My example is I have a patient that was coming to the group for her OB visits. She was seen by one of the Dr’s 3 times and seen by another Dr for 1 time. A total of 4 visits. The patient had to have a D/C at another facility by another Dr due to complications with the baby.

    My thinking is that I would bill out the 59425 for 4-6 visits under the Dr that seen her for the majority of the time. The issue has arrived that we should bill out for each Dr being they seen the patient. I am not sure if this is correct. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,

    You are correct. Pick a doctor & bill out the appropriate antepartum code once.
