We have several payers that require the maternity billing be split out by prenatal visits, delivery and postpartum visit - if we don't split it out like their policy states then we don't get paid. Unless you have a specific arrangement in writing with a payer on how to submit these claims I would bill them the way their policy states.
Many of our OB patients switch/change/lose insurance during the course of their pregnancy. I go back through when they deliver to decipher what they had when and bill each payer accordingly by splitting out the charges. It is the most accurate and legitimate way to bill.
