Some physicians have reported success billing 99420 or 99402 under the mother's insurance for these visits, but insurers differ widely on whether they'll pay these, and often Medicaid will not. Instead, most pediatricians consider these visits to be "practice builders" and don't charge a fee for these visits. This assumes that the visit is a "get to know you" visit and not a consultation due to the fetus having medical issues.
