Some carriers want you to bill the global OB code at the end of the pregnancy with a 22 modifier. Some carriers want you to bill for visits exceeding 13-14. Some carriers want you to bill for visits occuring more frequently than the normal monthly, bi-weekly, and then weekly prenatal schedule. You need to check your carrier rules.
