    For typical labor epidural what is the best diagnosis code for labor pain?

  2. #2


    659.81 is what we use at work. And then 59409/01967 for the procedure unless that do a cesarean section as well which would be 59414/01968 for the second line and the 00000/01967 for the epidural. Hope this helps!
