6 Tips for Easy OB/GYN Medical Billing
  • Obstetricians are specialist physicians in
    pregnancy and postpartum, gynecologists are the
    one who specializes in the female reproductive
    system. The health conditions that both these
    specialties deal with are diverse and diagnosing
    and treating them definitely involves a lot of
    detailing along with specificity. 
  • OB/GYN billers have to undergo a typical and
    frustrating medical billing concern, which occurs
    when the patient suddenly switches to another
    physician during the course of pregnancy.
    Moreover, the multiple complaints and
    complications that the pregnant patients and
    postpartum conditions have to make OB/GYN medical
    billing a huge challenge.
  • Following the right steps of OB/GYN medical
    billing with modern methods will certainly ensure
    guaranteed reimbursements and an increase in your
    revenue
  •  
  • Documenting Specific Trimester
  • New codes will be included in the medical billing
    system with the transition to ICD-10 this October
    01. There are certain codes in chapter 15 of the
    ICD-10-CM Manual that require the medical coders
    to specifically report during different
    trimesters. Physicians will have to document the
    billing with a specific number of weeks and days.

2. Reporting Annual GYN Exam The code for the
annual GYN exam in ICD-10 is Code Z01.4.
Physicians should document the annual GYN exam
information accurately and in detail with
information about whether the findings have any
peculiarities or abnormalities. If the physician
is not aware or trained in ICD-10 coding,
engaging OB/GYN medical billing services can help
prevent probable loss in revenue.   3.
Documenting the Cause of Pelvic Pain If a
physician identifies the cause of pelvic pain
associated with menstruation, the information
should be coded precisely. It is important to
document this information so that the coder can
file the code appropriately. 4. Documenting
Migraines When a patient comes with a complaint
of chronic migraine with menstrual cramps,
physicians should ensure the billing staff knows
that the patient has a menstrual migraine. There
are codes in ICD-10 for migraines, including
menstrual migraines like ICD-10-CM codes G43.82
and G43.83.

5. Reason for Fetus Viability
Scans Physicians need to check the scans
performed during the routine screening for
viability, or symptoms like decreased fetal
movement, fetal amenia, etc. as it indicates the
patient has a miscarriage and update the staff or
enter the precise information in his EHR system
for accurate billing. 6. Maternal Age
Complicates Pregnancy If the patient is above 30
yrs of age, the physician has to specify if the
advanced maternal age is the factor for delivery.
For instance, during the delivery process, the
patient may go through pre/post eclampsia, an
increased likelihood of postpartum hemorrhage
that can cause the problem.   Physicians can
avail medical billing and coding services from
