    Default Tubal ligation

    AAPC: Back to School
    First time the OB physician ever seen the patient.

    Does anCPT 59409- Vaginal delivery

    with a tubal ligation.

    Do I use CPT 59600 or 59605 for the tubal ligation with the vaginal delivery.

    I'm thinking the following service should be, coded as followed for this service.
    VD & tubal ligation


    Some input would be highly appreciated.

    thank you
    daniel, cpc
