    Default Depends on the documentation
    It depends on the documentation. The patient is the MOTHER (child doesn't exist yet in terms of billing). Most of the prenatal consults we perform are billed based on counselling/coordination of care ... but they have to be CORRECTLY DOCUMENTED as such!

    Hope that helps.

    Yes it does. I figured the meat&potatos of the visit would be based on counseling the mother on this sceanrio. Thanks.
