    Default Ob/Gyn Admit, just want to make sure

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our patient was admitted in October, day 1, for a planned Hysterectomy for fibroids. She was taken the OR where Dr. Doe performed a TAH. The patient had extensive adhesions and fibroids. She was stable in recovery and was transferred to the surgical ward when a bed was available. Dr. Doe stopped by to see the patient on day 1. He stopped by in the am of day 2 and saw that she was doing well and could be discharged. She was discharged with instructions to follow up in a week.

    I am coding 58150 for the TAH with a dx of 218.9. But do we code any other stay charges related to the admit on day 1 and 2? For example, what do we bill for day 2?

    Normal admit, hospital visits, and discharge are all included in the surgical reimbursement. You don't bill any of these in conjunction with the 58150. (I assume you're billing for Dr. Doe and not the facility.)

    Default Ob/Gyn Admit

    Thank you. Glad you agree. I billed the 58150 for one day; then 99024 for the second inpatient/discharge day. We will see how it works.
