Basics for OB/GYN Billings

Submitted by • July 26, 2019

The global obstetric (OB) code should be billed whenever one practitioner or practitioners of the same group provide all components of the patient’s obstetrical care, including; 4 or more antepartum visits, delivery, and postpartum care. The number of antepartum visits may vary from patient to patient, however, if global OB care (more than 3 antepartum visits, delivery, and postpartum care) is provided, ALL pregnancy-related visits (excluding inpatient hospital visits for complications of pregnancy) should be billed under the global OB code. Individual E/M codes should NOT be billed to report pregnancy-related E/M visits.
