    Question Delivery happens in Ambulance

    AAPC: Back to School
    we provided antepartum care for a patient, but the delivery of the baby happened in the ambulance and my provider delivered the placenta. Can I still use the global CPT? What about diagnosis? Or do I need to split everything up? Not sure what to do! Help!

    I suggest billing the global antepartum code, delivery of the placenta, and postpartum (when the patient returns to the office).
