Internal podalic version, twin delivery

  1. Question Internal podalic version, twin delivery
    Medical Coding Books
    Is there any separately billable charge for an internal podalic version? Twin A was delivered vaginally, Twin B was in transverse presentation. Provider attempted external version x 2 and then did the internal podalic version, turning Twin B to vertex. Twin B was then delivered vaginally with vacuum extraction.

    Thanks,

    Angela Anderson, CPC

    I have never billed for an internal version done during delivery. That is just part of the whole process.
