    Default Question regarding Doula services

    AAPC: Back to School
    What codes should be used in efforts to get Doula services covered?
    Just curious if anyone has any experience with this one.

    It looks like you are trying to bill for PP doula services. If the provider is certified as a doula only, you will have a very hard time getting reimbursement from an insurance company. The only time we have been able to receive reimbursement for doula services is when the provider is licensed as a midwife, but working in the capacity of a doula.

    In those cases, we have billed E/M codes--hospital visit or home visit--with V22.- or V24.2.
