    You bill 59510 and use modifier 22 to indicate it was more work than a typical c-section delivery. Use the ICD-9 code for triplets delivered and also the placenta abrupt code along with the V27.x code to indicate the outcome of the delivery. Be sure to bump up the fee to include the additional work, and you may have to send in operative report.


    **Thank you I corrected the code!**
