    Default OB Category II codes?
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone use the Patient Management Category II codes for their OB patients? 0500F, 0501F, 0502F and 0503F? Hoping someone can help me distinguish the difference between 0500F and 0501F?

    Default category codes
    Hi there,

    The 0500F code is used for intital prenatal care visit with the provider. The 0501F is the prenatal flow sheet documented, which I do not use . We only use 0500F,0502F(subsequent visit for continuing care), and of course 0503F for post partum.

    Hope this helps, good luck.

    Do you receive reimbursement for these category II codes? If so which insurance companies are you billing these codes to? Thanks.

    Category II codes are not for reimbursement but are used for tracking performance measures.
