    Default Perineal Revision

    AAPC: Back to School
    Pt had a vaginal delivery 5/12. At postpartum visit MD notes that perineum has healed w/posterior labial agglutination causing pain...

    On 7/8, MD performs perineal revision, incising scarred perineal tissue & enlarging vaginal opening.

    CPT? 56810 is nonobstetrical?

    you are with the right code 56810. It is non obstetrical now as on date , having passed the puerperium of 42 days.

    Default 56810

    What if it is at 7 weeks, post partum visit. Can this be billed?
