Can I bill a vaginal delivery for a 22 wk fetal demise/ turner syndrome. They physician also did a D/C for retained placenta.
Do I bill a 59409 for the vaginal delivery and also for a D/C. Code?

You cannot bill a vaginal delivery in case when there is fetal demise. Doctor needs to perform D&C. For second trimester, you should bill code 59821 (Treatment of missed abortion, completed surgically; second trimester).
Please feel free to write if you have any concerns.
