Billing for the Global OB Package

Webcast image

February 9, 2016

PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION:

Billing for the global obstetric package codes is unlike any other kind of billing found in the CPT code book. No codes include more services spanning a longer period of time. A clear understanding of what is included (and what is not included) is vital to the financial health of any women’s health practice that provides obstetric services.

OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the components of the global obstetric package, as defined by CPT
  • Properly report additional pregnancy-related services, as well as services unrelated to pregnancy, provided during the global period
  • Demonstrate familiarity with key ICD-10-CM reporting concepts associated with pregnancy diagnoses
  • Describe unique situations in which the global obstetric package can be billed apart from a "traditional" pregnancy
  • Recognize when and how to report for additional procedures and diagnostic tests provided during the course of a pregnancy
