    Default Twin delivery, one stillborn

    AAPC: Back to School
    My physician delivered a set of twins vaginally, one was stillborn The patient was full term.

    I have never billed for this type of situation before and was hoping that someone could help me with both ICD-9 and CPT-4 codes. Do I bill for both babies?? Thank You!!

    Default Twin delivery, one stillborn

    Based on information you provided:

    You would code for both deliveries 59400 twin A and 59409-51 Twin B

    Dx: 656.4 for stilborn and 651.__ , choose option for 2 other digits based on your notes.
    Do not forget to use the V code for placenta status also.
