Thread: Medicare prenatal visits

  1. #1

    Default Medicare prenatal visits

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have been having an increasing number of pregnant Medicare patients. Most insurances we bill globally but how do I bill Medicare prenatal visits?? Are they billed per visit like Medicaid or globally??

    Curious.... Are these patients covered via Medicare because of severe systemic issues, and are younger than 65? Do these clients have Medicaid or other coverage as a secondary insurance? Seems if they have a secondary, you have to bill the secondary per their requirements. If these individuals are 65 and are pregnant, I have no idea!!

    You also have disabled persons who are younger than 65 and are medicare eligible, as I recall.

    I have had a few Medicare OB's and billed out global without issue.

    We have several OB patients that have Medicare because of a disability. We bill global, just watch your prenatal labs...some of the labs Medicare does not covers, such as Vitamin D and urine cultures.
