    Hello, We have a provider who did the delivery 59409. Can he bill 59430 during the hospital stay if he does a post partum check on patient? or is it included? thanks!

    Hi,

    No, you cant bill 59430 as it is billed for postpartum care only and may only be billed if provider had no part in the delivery. No modifiers may be used.

    59409 includes check in the hospital.

    Hope that helps!
