Anytime I bill a hospital admission and discharge visit done by the doctor I work for, I always bill 99463 and then icd 9 code V30.00 or V30.01 (depending on whether the baby was delivered vaginally or by c-section).
Someone recently told me I could bill 99462 and 99238 as well.
So in that case, do I bill all 3 of these cpt codes with either V30.00 or V30.01?
How does this work exactly please?

You may follow the following scenarios:
1. If admission and discharge are on same day, then use only 99463.
2. If admission and discharge are on different dates, then:
--a) For first day of evaluation, bill 99460.
--b) For second day onwards, bill 99462.
--c) For day of discharge, bill 99238.
