    Question Baby delivered in car!
    Medical Coding Books
    HI, I work for a billing service and need some assistance.
    One of the OB-gyn's patient's was on the way to hospital and delivered in the car, they want to know if they can bill for delivery? I said no.
    Also, where can I find documentation on this? Thanks so much.

    Well, then who performs the post partumcare, if you assign for delivery of the placenta alone.
    Every patient delivered on the car or elevator or or at the casuality or urgent care(at home and immediately brought to the hospital) needs to be evaluated by the physicianan dgiven PP care in the delivery room for another 2hours atleast. This is universal rule. Added to that it is a routine to give syntocinon drip and Iv fluids (hydration which is a part of PPCare)
    Moreover, the immediate post partum care is all the more important to be taken care of and evaluated bythe physician.

    What about reporting 59430?
