    Default Amniocentesis

    AAPC: Back to School
    Dr did an amniocnetesis along with an ultrasound, can 59000 be used along with 76946, or is it one or the other???? Also there is no procedure note with the amnio.

    Thanks for the help

    My source shows 76946 is reportable. I use the "OB/GYN (A comprehensive illustrated guide to coding and reimbursement) from Ingenix which is INVALUABLE. It shows the CCI edits, RVU's, and follow up/global.
