    Default twin delivery c-section

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of our billers coded 59514,22 for a patient on medicaid ins. It was billed twice. Shouldn't this have been be billed once? What is the correct way to code twin delivery, c-section?

    You'll want to confirm with your state's Medicaid OB policy on cesarean only coding. NC Medicaid instructs for example, to bill 59514 for the first birth and 59514-51 for the second.
