    Default Extended time spent with pt

    AAPC: Back to School
    If one of our midwives spend an extended amount of time with a patient during labor then has to turn this patient over to a covering MD (from another practice) for a c section - how would I bill for the midwife time?

    Thank you!

    This would be a Inpt consult and would need time face to face in order to determine level
