Discharge CPT code for newborn

Sandra Posted Tue 31st of January, 2012 17:31:37 PM

We use '99460' for admitting a newborn and '99462' for subsequent visits. What CPT code should you use for discharge if it is NOT on the same day ?

SuperCoder Answered Thu 02nd of February, 2012 15:30:32 PM

99238 Hospital discharge day management; 30 minutes or less
99463: Initial hospital or birthing center care, per day, for evaluation and management of normal newborn infant admitted and discharged on the same date
