    Default Spont Vag Del

    AAPC: Back to School
    37 wk gestation. Patient is covered by commercial carrier. Patient had ruptured membrane at home and went into labor. Once EMS arrived baby was delivered. Upon arrival to Labor/Delivery unit baby was out but placenta was still intact. Physician delivered placenta. Can I still bill the global delivery code or would I need to go back and bill for all ante visits and then the delivery of placenta. Thanks in advance for all the advice.

    A global OB package includes the delivery so I would agree with your proposal, unbundle the Global OB package with antepartum, placenta delivery,and post partum visits.
